New Twitter is here! Hurrah!
Not for all of us, admittedly, but it’s getting there…
So what’s new about it?
Listing all the awesome new features that are now available to some of its users is too easy and to be honest, a lot of people have done that already.
Where can we add value?
Here at 1000heads, we like to help people.
Be that through offering real world shops easier ways to talk about their social selves or even just recommending best practice for that most unused of social spaces; the twitter background.
We’ve done this before.
However, what with #NewTwitter on the scene, all that hard work and stunning imagery we advised back in January is going to waste; it’s now suddenly hidden behind Twitter’s brand new, super-slick and super-fast web interface.
This means change. But do not fear, change is GOOD! 🙂
No. Neither can we. Rubbish right? Agreed. Which is why we’ve changed it.
Now it looks like this –
What do you think?
We’re off to tell our friends and clients to make use of this window ASAP and to get to work on changing their Twitter background sharpish.
Perhaps you should too 🙂
If you want to create your own, then we recommend graphic that has a 20pixel gap at the top and a 48pixel width for the side. We’d also recommend, for now at least, that you create something that works on both #newtwitter and old.
If you’ve updated your background because of this post, then please do leave a comment with a link. We’d love to know who’s not only benefited from this blog but also – more importantly – exactly how creative our readers can get with such limited space!
Best of luck 🙂
