Twitter revamped its desktop webpages Monday to better mirror the experience of visiting the popular one-to-many text messaging service on smartphones.

The change comes as people increasingly take to visiting online social networks and other online venues from mobile devices instead of laptop or desktop computers.

Modifications to twitter.com were mostly cosmetic, with no new tools or features added.

Profile pictures and background art were moved to the upper left side, where a box makes it more convenient to compose and tweet messages.

Twitter users were also invited to personalize the new profile pages with accent colours.
