How to change your Twitter header image

Big news today for Twitter users. Twitter profile pages have now been updated with header images. If you’ve ever used Facebook or Google+, they’re basically a version of the cover photo.

To see what Twitter header images look like, visit your Twitter account and click on the “me” section. Now let’s customize your Twitter header image!

So how do you change your Twitter header image?

First things first – prepare your image. When creating your image, keep in mind that using a smaller image than the recommended size will result in a grainy and poor Twitter header image. Also, when choosing an image, remember, this image goes below your Twitter avatar so it may take a few tries to get things right.

The recommend size for your new Twitter header image is as follows:

  • Dimensions: 1252×626 px
  • Maximum size of 5 mb

Why change your Twitter header image?

One of the key benefits to Twitter header images is that it’s a great way to help give your followers better insight into what makes you tick – it’s also great for improving interactions with followers.
