This week Twitter rolled out an update to its web and mobile apps to add Facebook-like profile header images. The header image is a custom background that appears at the top of your profile page, like this one we’ve added for CubeSocial:
Once you’ve added a profile image it’s visible on your Twitter page via web, iPad, iPhone and Android apps. For businesses this is a great way to increase the branding of their page.
To add a profile image of your own click the cog icon on the top right of your Twitter page then click Edit Profile.
Next click Design on the left-hand menu. In the section labelled Customize your own you’ll see the default header image is a dark grey box. Upload your image (ideally the image should be 1200 x 600 pixels in size). You’ll see the image in the box change immediately, but beware your header image won’t actually be saved until you click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
That’s it! Enjoy.
