How to upload a photo for the all-new header photo design in Twitter

Greetings Dear Readers

Here are some tips to get you started with a new header photo for your new Twitter Profile page.
Twitter has just announced the new changes.

This will change what your Twitter Profile page looks like.
You can see a example of this on my page

Notice anything different?

So how do you change it for your Profile?

Here are some easy steps for you:

  1. Go to your profile page - you can also get there by clicking on the new Me icon at the top of your Twitter page.
  2. Click on Edit your Profile - you can find the link by the cogwheel icon
  3. Click on the Design option
  4. Go down to where it says Customize your own
  5. Look for the new Header section and click on Change Header
  6. Bear in mind the limits - the picture has to be minimum dimensions of 1252 x 626
  7. The maximum file size can be 5MB
  8. Select a image from your pc or mobile or iPad
  9. Add it
  10. First check if you like the new design before you use it
  11. Here is a inside trick as well, if you look carefully when you load the pic Twitter gives you the option of allowing you to zoom in or out of the picture which gives you different looks you can play around with.
  12. When you are happy with the picture save it and show it off to all your friends.  Direct them to your profile page and sit back and smile.  

There you go Dear Readers those are some interesting new developments.
Now just imagine how you can use that for your Brand, Company or Personal Brand.
The options are limitless.

Here are some more articles about the new changes:
