This blank canvas is meant to show off tweets themselves, rather than users’ profiles.
The company also hopes it’ll make Twitter easier to use.
A spokesperson told Mashable: “We’re removing background images from the home and notifications timelines on web for all users.
“Now, background images are only available where logged-in users will see them publicly (Tweet pages, list pages and collections pages).
“You can find help centre content about customizing your design and where it’s visible on Twitter here.”
