Twitter Gets a New Look Profile

Facebook Timeline was just the start.  Now Twitter is getting in on the act of personalising profiles.

I wonder what is next – the world of social media doesn’t stand still does it?  Just as you get used to Facebook Timeline (which many Facebook users complain about I note – I am not one of them), Twitter goes and adds a new look to user’s profiles so I thought I would be nosy and check it out.

I liked the whole Twitter profile header idea on investigation and was soon having a play with a few ideas.  I tried to keep the general look consistent with my existing marketing concept as this is always good practice and I found it was pretty simple to achieve a good result.  If you want to have a play with your own Twitter profile header here’s how to do it.

  • On log in to your Twitter account, click on the “gear” at the top right of the screen.  When the drop down menu appears choose ‘Settings’.
  • Look for ‘Design’  and click on it in the options presented to you.
  • Scroll until you find Customise your own section and choose ‘Change header’.
  • Next upload your chosen image, reposition and resize using the zoom function. (Image size 1252 x 626 minimum -maximum file size is 5MB)
  • When you are happy with the result click ‘Save‘and its as easy as that.
