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

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 and other online venues from instead of laptop or desktop computers.

"We're now rolling out a refreshed twitter.com reflecting the look and feel of our iOS and Android apps," the San Francisco-based company said in a message fired off at Twitter.

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 colors.
