Every week there are more and more changes in social media and this week was no exception. With all the sites letting you get more creative, Twitter stepped up to the plate this week to let you add a header that becomes a background for your profile. This change will allow you to swap photos in and out over time depending on your mood, or marketing campaign.
It’s really simple to set up. Open your Twitter account and go to the little gear up in the right-hand corner. Click and select “Settings” and “Design.”
Look for the new “Customize your own” … “Change Header” option. Follow the normal procedures for uploading a picture and, voila, you’ve got a cool new thing on your profile page.
This simple addition really adds more depth and messaging to the Twitter profile page. Have you updated your Twitter profile page recently? You should have if you’ve been listening to our own KS Brooks.The only complaint that I have is that the white text gets a little lost if the picture is too busy. Keep that in mind when selecting your photo.
Let me know if you like this change or if you think it is a complete waste of time!
