Twitter Background: How To Create A Twitter Background

Most people use one of the standard Twitter backgrounds.  If you want to be unique and stand out from the rest, try creating your own Twitter background.   

 To create your custom twitter background (I assume you already have a twitter account):

  • Think about your image and what you want to display to the world.

  • Twitter takes the center of the page so design with that in mind.

  • Create an image 1600 x 1200 but remember that screens with higher resolutions will tile the image.

  • It would be a good idea to use a border, when creating your image.  A portion of the top of the screen is dedicated to the Twitter logo and user navigation, so remember that when creating your image.

  • Upload your image by signing into your Twitter Account and go to:
    1. Settings
    2. Design
    3. Change background image
    4. Browse
    5.   Select your new image

You can always change it back if you don’t like it.  Remember to view it on many different systems to see how it looks.  Creating a custom Twitter page is a great way to stand out from the rest and increase your numbers.
