Twitter recently announced that you can now add a custom header image to your Twitter page. (Sound like someone chasing Facebook’s coattails?). It’s super easy to setup your Twitter header, (assuming you already have the image), and should take less than 30 seconds. Simply follow the step by step instructions below. And share your pages with us in the comments! We’d love to see them.
To customize your header photo:
1 Sign in to your account.
2 Go to your Settings and click on the Design tab.
3 Scroll down to the Customize your own section.
4 Click on Change Header to upload a new header photo or remove your existing header photo (file must be smaller than 5MB).
5 Select the image you would like to upload.
6 Click Save.
7 You’ll see a notification that your image has successfully been published to your profile.
Per Twitter’s website – the image should be 1200 x 600 pixels, which is pretty large considering they automatically resize it to 520 x 260. But the most annoying part of the “header” image is that your own profile image and the text you’ve entered as your Twitter description will be shown over top of the image – which leaves very little you can actually do with the image.
We’re not really fans of this new Twitter header image, but wanted to make sure you were aware of the new feature. You can see our Twitter header image by visiting us on Twitter (oh – be sure to follow us if you aren’t already).
What do you think of the new header images?
