300 Seconds: Twitter Cover Image

Back in April, Twitter redesigned the way our profile pages appear. One of those changes included a full-width cover image. Have you added a cover image to your profile page yet?

I see a lot of “blank” cover images on Twitter. If you intentionally left yours blank, that’s fine. But if you just haven’t had time, take 5 minutes to add that photo today.

Choose an image that appropriately represents you or your store. (And keep in mind that your profile image will obscure a small portion of the cover image near the lower left corner.)

The size of your cover image should be 1500 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall. I use Photoshop to alter my image sizes, but you should be able to do it in the photo editing software you use. And if it will take you longer than 300 seconds to figure out how to use that software, just send your preferred image to me. I’ll resize it and send it back.

If you can’t decide which image to choose, then 1) select them all, 2) prepare them to size, and 3) change them often.
