Online community managers and digital specialists already know that social networks compete for users by introducing new design features at least once every year. Most recently, Twitter has unveiled a new look for profile pages that feature a header image and added a new tab “Me” to the existing “Home”, @Connect and #Discover tabs.
Similar to Facebook and Google+ cover photos, the new Twitter profile pages now allow people and brands to include a larger header image. This image appears behind your avatar that sits in the middle.
For brands, this presents a new challenge to find a way to design a header image that would interact with their avatars. The image you choose for the header cannot exceed 1252×626 pixels (with a max file size of 5MB). Once you have uploaded your new image, you can move and scale it as you please.
The way to upload it is very easy. Go to your profile “Settings” and click on “Design” and then scroll down to “Change Header”.
