How to Change Twitter Design Colors: A "Twitter Tuesday" Post

As many “Twitter Tuesday” posts that I’ve shared with you, I’m amazed at how each week, I always have something new to share. Today’s post is something I re-discovered a few days ago, after making tweaks to my own Twitter background.

I kept the same beach photo I’d taken last summer as my main background, because it fits Charleston and it fits me. What’s new? We’ll, with the #NewTwitter moving the bio front and center, it seemed a bit repetitive to include the same few sentences about myself over in the new, more narrow space to the left of the main Twitter area. So, I took that away and decided instead to place more photos vertically in the far left background space.

Since I was making this update, I had a few photos taken of myself over the holiday break that I plugged in.  I’m a girl, and we care too much about our hair sometimes.  Mine is less red and longer, and since I meet many people locally through Twitter, I want to “look” as close to my profile pic as I can.  It’s important.

I’ve also grown as a jewelry artist and creative person over the past year, and wanted to showcase more than just a pair of earrings for the creative/artsy work that I enjoy in addition to my online marketing tips and tutorials.

If you’re curious about what my updated background looks like, I hope you’ll hop over to Twitter so we can connect there as well.

Onto our tutorial…

    Yeah, the business’ Twitter account should adhere to the theme of the business itself. This can allow for an efficient branding technique. It’s very important to make the most out of free advertising platforms, social networks being the dominant ones.
