Guidelines

Twitter’s recommended guidelines for header images.

  • Header photo recommended dimensions are 1500px by 500px
  • Photos can be in any of the following formats: JPG, GIF, or PNG. (Twitter does not support animated GIFs for profile or header images.)


However, you need to account for your profile picture and the “invisible area”., fortunately for you, we got you covered. When choosing a template, you can pick your design and be sure that it will look good on the twitter website.

Do’s and Dont’s

You need to bear in mind that Twitter is accessible to all, and though that is good for business, it also means that there are a few practises you should keep in mind to have a strong header, representative of your business.

 -Utilize whitespace

If you’re using graphics or a designed image of any type, use whitespace (or negative space) to your advantage. This helps keep your header looking clean and organized. This gives it that high-quality look professional images have.

 – Use the right sizing and grammar on your text

The worst thing that could happen is having a word misspelled, or not even being able to read the text. It’s important not to have your text too small, proper grammar.

You should try as well not to place any important info in those spaces that we know that won’t show when you upload the header.

-Use your header to share other social media and/or events

You want the other social media info to be noticeable so that the users can visit you in other platforms, or promote an event or product.

– Make a clean, simple design

A clean and simple design is easier to do and overall prettier.
