With the new iOS released, Twitter is reminding us that they have a new “Header” feature for your feed. This allows you to upload an image to your landing page that will live at the top of your stream for viewers to see and enjoy. Nice for adding to your branding efforts, but a bit awkward.

Here are some tips for adding your own: you can upload an new image by following this path: Settings (gear symbol)/Design/Header. Twitter says that you should format your image to 1200 pixels by 600 pixels (pretty big; a little more than 16 inches by 8 inches).

Since twitter takes your bio and places it in white text, center aligned, right trough the middle of your image, make sure that you don’t have anything white or light colored in the background. It’s best to use the far left or far right side of the frame. Dark-color backgrounds are best, of course.

Here are some fun ideas.
