Twitter’s new profile layout is now available to all users after an initial rollout to celebrities like first lady Michelle Obama and actor Channing Tatum.

Not sure you want to make the switch? Rest assured, you can try it out, then change it back for now.

Here’s how to give it a shot:

Go to Twitter’s product page on the new profiles, and click the blue button that says “Get it now.”

What you will get with the new profile is a larger top image that is more reminiscent of Facebook’s profile page, as well as a more prominent display for your most successful tweets. Users will also be able to pin tweets they’re particularly proud of to the top of their profile pages.

Once you click the button, Twitter will show you how your profile will look with the new layout and allow you to make any edits, so have a cover photo ready that will work in that format.

In a light blue box at the top of the page, Twitter will ask, "Like what you see?" If the answer is no, simply click "Not now" and go back to your old profile.
