Creating a Twitter Header

Posted by on November 12, 2012 in Online Marketing, Social Media, Tips, Twitter | 0 comments

Twitter revamped the profile layout a while back to allow users to upload a header to their profile. Here is how you can take advantage of the latest layout.

To customize your header photo:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Go to your Settings and click on the Profile tab.
  3. Click on Change Header to upload a new header photo or remove your existing header photo (file must be smaller than 5MB).
  4. Select the image you would like to upload.
  5. You'll see a notification that your image has successfully been published to your profile.
  6. Click Save.
Twitter suggests an image with the dimensions 1252×626 px with a maximum file size of 5MB, however many will receive an Internal server error trying to upload. If the image is created with the dimensions 1200×600 px it upload with no problem.
