You might have already noticed that twitter has started to enrol a new profile layout. In this blog entry we take note of some of the changes that you can soon expect to see if your profile hasn’t already changed.
Profile photo – Your profile photo will be enlarged. This is particularly great for branding purposes and especially for businesses as they are able to use this space to catch and maintain attention with a powerful image.
Customise your header – Headers have now shifted so that they stretch across the screen. Twitters official recommended header sizes are 1500px (width) x 500 (height) however these dimensions seem to be causing a lot of trouble for people. Therefore other blog entries are stating that the dimensions 1500px (width) x 421px (height) are more appropriate. Due to this confusion it is worth considering the following template by blogger Pauline Cabrera as she provides a visual guide to what parts of your header will be visible on your profile. When you come around to changing your twitter profile and in particular your header, you should bear in mind that you are going to have to be patient and might have to spend some time re-sizing your image to ensure that it fits appropriately.
