Twitter is now one of the most popular social media platforms, with more than 500 million users. The microblogging service allows users to send and read 140-character posts, or tweets, in real time. Founder Jack Dorsey published the first tweet "just setting up my twttr" on March 21, 2006. These short bursts of information have proved to be popular modes of communication and have set world records for the number of tweets per second. From President Obama's presidential campaign to the Egyptian revolution, Twitter has created significant social impact and serves as the leading communication system for breaking news. Twitter is said to generate 340 million tweets per day and is one of the Top 10 most visited sites on the Internet.
The immense popularity of Twitter makes it a powerful tool for companies to market their brands. There's no better way to make a lasting first impression on Twitter than with a custom profile design. A professionally designed Twitter page will make your brand stand out from the crowd and get noticed by millions of active users engaging with companies on the social network.
Twitter offers settings that allow for custom images and background colors. Take advantage of these options by installing a custom Twitter background for your company. Blue Interactive can create custom designs, or companies have the option of choosing a design style.
Twitter Background Designs
Full-Page Design - A full-page design on Twitter is one large background graphic that fills the entire computer screen area. A large graphic offers more opportunity to incorporate creative elements. However, it is a large file and screen sizes will vary on different monitors. This type of design is ideally viewed on larger resolutions.
Repeating Pattern Design - A repeating pattern image works for resolutions of all sizes and fills up the entire computer screen area. However, design options are more limited due to the repeating images.
Half-Page Design - A half-page design frees up space for creativity, and your design can be viewed at higher resolutions. Portions of the design may be hidden at smaller resolutions, so keep this in mind when designing text.
Sidebar Option - Some Twitter designs incorporate a sidebar option. This area is usually used to display additional company information, an image, bio or links to websites and social media networks. Sidebars are best viewed on larger resolution screens of at least 1280 x 1024.
