The “Home” Icon shows your picture, Followers, those you follow, the number of tweets you have made and space to make a quick tweet. Below that Twitter suggests tweeps to follow and also what is trending. The Main area is your timeline showing tweets of those you follow.
The “Me” icon reveals the Facebook like design with a large cover picture, Your profile picture, Your Twitter Profile, When you joined and the number of photos and videos you have uploaded since joining. Below the Header is your number of tweets made since joining, the number of people you follow, and those following you, favorites and more with the “Edit Profile icon to the extreme left.
