Twitter recently made major changes to the profile design of all Twitter users. Don’t get caught with an archaic look on your profile. Here are a few tips:
Post a new cover image: The new Twitter profiles have larger cover images. The image is no longer aligned to the right side of the page; it covers the entire width of the profile.
You can upload a cover image of 1500 x 500 pixels, so you can choose a dynamic image that displays your brand in the best light. This lets you make a good first impression by choosing a large image with the right dimensions.
Pin your top tweets: The new Twitter profile allows you to pin your preferred tweets at the top of the profile. Whether an important event that you want to share with visitors or an announcement, pin it to ensure it doesn’t go unnoticed. You can also pin a good tweet at the top to give it a longer shelf life.
Update your profile image: The size of profile images has increased to 400 x 400 pixels. Any images you share on Twitter will be catalogued to make it easier for people to find them at the top of your profile. Use these to promote your brand character and increase authority in your industry.
Link to favorites: The new profile makes it easy to access your favorite tweets. At the top of the profile, just below the cover photo, there’s a link to all your favorites.
Because favorites are now in a noticeable position, pay particular attention to what tweets you favorite; make sure it doesn’t look unprofessional and that it promotes your brand’s message.
