How to Customise Your Twitter Homepage

Submitted by on October 29, 2009 – 05:22No Comment

twitterTweet tweet! Twitter is one of the most popular network tools in the Internet right now. Even big corporations like Dell, Time, People Magazine, Microsoft and Apple have gone into Twitter to reach their target audience and befriend with them. Starting a conversation with people becomes as easy as tracking a person, following his status and have many people following you in return. Thus, resulting in instant responses to anything you have to say from all over the globe.

Like many online tools/services, each Twitter user will own a homepage of their own where people log on to check out the latest updates. The great thing about Twitter is you get to personalise your Twitter homepage. With a customised layout and presentation, you can leverage on Twitter to reach out to your target audience while reflecting your brand identity. And here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Log on to and sign in your account. If you do not have a Twitter account, click here to find out how to sign up for one.

Step 2: You’ll then appear on this page (above). From the menu bar, click on SETTINGS.

Step 3: At the SETTINGS page, select DESIGN (the last tab). Your window should appear as above.

Step 4: Let’s start by changing the background image.  Click on CHANGE BACKGROUND IMAGE. Then CHOOSE FILE to select the background image you want to upload from your computer. Click on SAVE CHANGES when you are done.

Step 5: When you have clicked SAVE CHANGES, your profile customisation is automatically saved. You will be able to see that the background is effective immediately.

Step 6: Having a nice background is only part of the process of customisation. To ensure everything on your Twitter homepage complements, you’ll need to customise the colours of your sidebars and text too. Click on CHANGE DESIGN COLORS.

Step 7: Select the colours for your background (even though you have already placed an image as the background). It’s best to select a colour closest to your background image. You can customise colours for the rest of the elements too. Click SAVE CHANGES when you are done.

Step 8: Your customisation has been saved automatically every time you click on SAVE CHANGES.

Step 9: Click on HOME to see the end result of your customisation. If you are unhappy about it, you can go back to SETTINGS > DESIGN and make changes again.

When people log on to your Twitter homepage, they will be able to associate immediately with your brand through the visual background. Looks almost as good as a website eh? I love how mine turned out. With little effort and no knowledge of html coding at all, you are able to customise your Twitter homepage background. Isn’t it amazing?
