How To Customize Your Twitter Profile Header

The popular social network has added a feature that lets you customize your profile header background image. This lets you make your profile more unique.

Customize Your Profile

Log into your account, then lick the gear icon on the top left side of the page and go to Settings.

Next, in the menu on the right side select Design.

Now scroll down to Customize Your Own and click the Change header button.

Choose the image you want to use from your computer and adjust it by zooming in or out. When you’re happy with it click Save.

The image will now be used as your header image, and your profile will look like my example.

The only thing I don’t really like is that clicking the image itself doesn’t take you directly to the editing menu.

Oh, and one more thing. You can remove the image altogether from the same menu, just click Change header and then Remove.

    This just makes it harder to read the bio

      Indeed it does. But it looks cool, doesn’t it? 🙂

        Yeah, if you want to make it really cool, you’ll need to pic an image with the right color tones.

          Unlike mine, you mean? I think Eddie has all the tones he needs. And you’d better think the same, unless you want him to come and get you 🙂
