The New Twitter Header
Twitter recently rolled out an update, which allows you to insert a new “header photo” that sits on top of your feed, a lot like Facebook’s timeline cover image. In todays article I’ll be showing you how to update yours.
The Twitter Header In All Its Glory
Your New Twitter Header
If you want to update your twitter header then simply follow the steps below.
Prepare an image, minimum of 700 x 626 pixels wide up to 1252 x 626 pixels. The bigger the better(Twitter recommends 1200 x 600 pixels), keep in mind when designing your new header that now your bio, location and current avatar is also displayed over the top of the image.
Make sure you think about your choice of background, fail at this point and your bio and text will be unreadable.
Adding Your Header
Log in to your twitter account then head over to the settings page. You can access this page from the top right.
Once your in the settings page, from the left hand side menu select “Design”.
Scroll down to the bottom where you normally change your twitter background and colors. You should now see there is a change header option.
You won’t need to spend a lot of time editing the size of the image. After you choose an image, Twitter lets you customize how you want to display the image.
Save your image and your done.
