One of the best twitter tips you can take action on is to change your background and make it part of you, your business, your brand…make it an extension of your blog.
My good blogging friend, Erica who owns the blog, www.EricaSays.com recently published a blog post discussing this twitter tip.
Erica says it all…there is nothing for me to add except just before Erica published her post, I did change my Twitter background.
Take a peek and follow me on Twitter while you are there. Here’s my Twitter page:
What do you think? Do you like my “Bob (Andrew) the Builder” character?
Now go and visit Erica’s post and take action on one of the best Twitter tips around:
Do You Have a Custom Twitter Background?
Your “Bob (Andrew) the Builder” has — in my humble opinion — a few inconsistencies and flaws.
* Bob seems to be doing “blue color” labor. However, the color scheme is red and the skyline points more to a sophisticated life-style theme.
* Bob is way too small. He is a handsome guy.
The sad part is that most of the people don’t get to see it at all ’cause of small monitors, apps like tweetdeck and seesmic, etc.
However, I agree one should have a ‘branded’ background.

I’ve been preaching this for a while now. To add on this, there is a great free service(tweetspinner) that will alternate your background and color scheme automatically.

Aloha Andrew and Fellow Twitters –
Changing you twitter page is really simple with the knowledge of size and file type. after that have fun –
I like the custom backgrounds because it does get a chance to set you apart. As for memorable – I know for a fact people will remember you by a certain graphic. I have been doing silhouettes for years and now I have the luxury of being able to change colors and symbols to change moods and evoke responses without Typography. It has allowed me the ability to move my images outside social media to more traditional off-set print with huge success.

I would like a professional 3rd party opinion –
Aloha for now .
I looked at your Twitter site. Must admit I like design but I found the text hard to read on that black background.
This is really a nice read, I checked out your twitter profile and I really like the background. Not bad at all.. I’m new to twitter so I think I need to do some changes, By the way I followed you on twitter.. Looking forward on interacting with you on the network 🙂
