2 Free Twitter Header Maker Websites & Best Practices

Since Dick Costolo, the CEO of Twitter, announced the update to profile look back in September 2012, users have been busy tweaking their Twitter headers for that perfect look.

Twitter headers are not much different from Facebook’s profile covers, only a difference in the dimensions, that’s all it is.

A great-looking Twitter header grabs the viewer’s attention in a snap, and they instantly hit the follow button. Okay, now I might have exaggerated it, but still, Twitter has also opened out avenues for visual creativity, taking a page out of Facebook’s book.

Since then, many of Twitter’s users have got it right and expressed themselves visually on the network. But that has also left many users stumped over what picture to choose and how to format it to make it the best fit.

  • Twitter header size – 1500 x 500
  • Twitter profile image – 400 x 400

Design Tips for your Twitter Cover Image

The Twitter header is one of the biggest real-estate properties of your Twitter profile – you want to make it look appealing and present an idea of who you are and what you do. So, while designing the header for your Twitter profile, you should make sure –

  • It is attention-grabbing
  • It delivers your message/ Brand Mission
  • It should use your brand colors
  • It speaks your personality
