  • Smaller images will appear low-quality when set as your header photo. Opt for a large photo from which you can display a sliver of content rather than using a photo that has to be stretched to fit the header.

Warnings

  • Unfortunately, Twitter's old setting which allowed you to set a different feed and profile background has been removed. Your only options are Night Mode and changing the header photo.
