SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Twitter on Tuesday began revamping profile pages to let users display more of their online personalities, giving the popular service a Facebook-like feel.

"The new web profile lets you use a larger profile photo, customize your header, show off your best Tweets and more," Twitter designer David Bellona said in a blog post.

Twitter showed off the redesign at the accounts of high-profile accounts such as that of US First Lady Michelle Obama at @flotus and music stars #JohnLegend and @Weezer.

On redesigned Twitter pages, messages that prompt people to respond or "re-tweet" appear in larger type to reveal which comments resonated with followers.
