Thanks for linking to us above!

Here are some key things to consider when designing a Custom Twitter Background:

#1 - The BIO area in the “Twitter Content Area” gets picked up through Google searches. I recommend putting your “business keywords/content” there.

#2 - Because the custom twitter background is a JPG/PNG it doesn’t have any “searchable” value. I recommend putting your “personality” there. (i.e. the personal funstuff so people see your real, photo)
#3 - Design to the common resolutions (1280×768, 1440×900, 1680×1050, 1920×1200).

#4 - With a custom branded background, you most likely increase your chances of someone “stopping” and following, then if you had a “stock” background from Twitter.

#5 - If you’re attempting to utilize Twitter as a sales tool for your product or service… then don’t add ALL of your thousands of social media. Sometimes it drives people in, what I call a “social media loop” and they never get to your storefront (which is where you need them to land). That’s like sending out a Direct Mail card advertising your YellowPage Ad (it’s advertising the advertisement).


Let me know if anyone has any questions… be glad to help.
