Twitter, one of the most popular social media apps in the world today, has a pretty blue interface. If you’ve been using Twitter for sometime, you will probably know how to customize the interface with your own custom images. Custom backgrounds reveal in some way, your personal identity, your state of mind, or even your business branding. If you’re new to Twitter or never had the time to sit down and create a background, this how-to guide will help you create a custom twitter background in no time at all.
If you’re still not sure whether you need to create a custom Twitter background, then ask yourself these two questions.
1. Do you wish to showcase your brand to your followers and reveal a little bit more than what you can in the bio section?
2. Do you want to build a community and interact with the members actively?
Then you may want to express yourself visually so that people can understand who you are. For example, if you are a chef or run a cooking blog, displaying a background of you working with people in a kitchen or preparing dishes is sure to show your passion for your work and appeal to followers. If the answer to the above questions is a Yes, you should get started right away and let your creative juices flow.
