Twitter is a continually growing trend with a shocking popularity worldwide so it’s impossible to avoid a Twitter-related article here (the Twitter icon on the right side of this very article is enough proof of my statement, and very hard to ignore, indeed!).

40 Cool Twitter Background Designs

This time we will discuss about Twitter from a designer’s perspective and we’ll be referring to Twitter background designs – something you really shouldn’t take for granted if you care about giving a clue of your personality to your followers, and that at the first glance! So we’ll be looking at some Tweeter backgrounds that are impressive because of their original and very well-balanced graphics, and, in fact, because they have style! A Twitter background is much less demanding than that of a site or blog, but considering that thousands of people could relate to you through that, you should give it a bit of thought, however.

Basically, you have to decide about a picture that you place on your Twitter page and usually you get the best results either if you choose a very complex photo-manipulation or composition that catches the eye or if you prefer a simple but striking and very original photo that is cool to look at and makes quite an impression! Don’t forget about the most important element, though – the background that you choose should be a close reflection of your personality! I hope the examples in this article will inspire you for that!

  3. I’m not sure I like all the transparencies. It’s hard to read the actual content, which should take center stage and not compete with what is around it.

  15. Thanks for the guidelines, I discovered that website positioning or search engine optimization has become the guts and soul of the Internet advertising and marketing industry and many Canadian MSPs and VARs are taking a look at Search Optimization as a part of their total online advertising strategy.
