Did you know there’s new social real estate available? It’s over at Twitter and it’s called a header.
Your new Twitter header is visible on your personal profile page on mobile apps for iPad, iPhone, Android and twitter.com. If it reminds you of Facebook’s cover photo feature, it’s because it is just like it (so it shouldn’t be too confusing). A few simple steps will have you up and running. While the header is only visible if someone visits your profile, it’s still nice to take advantage of the space. Here’s how to set up your header from twitter.com:
Select “settings” from the the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner of your profile page:
Next, select the “Design” option from the left hand side bar:
Click on “Change header” and either upload a photo or take a new one with your camera.
Voila! Your new header. (You can update the header from your phone, as well. Select the “Me” tab and follow the same steps as above.)
Need some inspiration? Here are a few sweet headers I’ve come across.
