How to create the new Twitter profile in 4 steps
Updated on February 7th, 2013
Twitter launched a new user profile design across their Web, iPhone, iPad & Android apps last week allowing further customisation of your profile. I wasn’t aware and chances are a few of our readers (maybe you?) missed this as well so I thought why not share the quick tip so you too can make the most of the new design.
According to Mashable, only 8% of the top 100 brands have taken advantage of the new setting so here’s your chance to get ahead of the big guys.
Steps to follow:
- Select a photo or create an image that expresses your own or your company’s personality.
The new header image will have your Twitter profile Image, Name, Username & Bio overlaid so best not to select anything that has text already. The recommended dimensions are 1200px × 600px, but it gives you the opportunity to tweak once uploaded.
- Log into Twitter & visit https://twitter.com/settings/design or go to your Twitter Settings and select the Design tab.
- Under Header Image, select Change Header and browse for your the profile image you just created. Hit OK & remember to click the Save Changes button.
- Visit your profile on the web and your phone to see your new custom profile.
