Twitter has infuriated a large number of hardcore web users today with a new change to the look of its desktop timeline. If you had previously uploaded a custom wallpaper image to your profile, you’ll notice it’s no longer there. Instead, Twitter has decided to replace everyone’s background image with nothing, but white.

According to a Twitter spokesperson who spoke to Engadget, “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).” Twitter is hoping to show a more unified look across its platform, so odds are custom wallpapers for timelines won’t be coming back anytime soon.
