Twitter adds more prominent tweet to and direct message buttons to Web profiles

If you’ve been poking around Twitter.com today, you probably noticed a couple new buttons on the site. Twitter announced today that it has updated the look of its Web profile pages to include sizable “Tweet to” and “Message”buttons.

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The buttons replace the “Tweet to” text box from an earlier profile design. Since they match your profile color, they can stick out a bit. I’m sure we’ll get used to the buttons eventually, but the change is jarring.

Other updates to Twitter profiles today include a new Web font that should help speed and readability and new profile color choices.
