As most of you may already know, Twitter has rolled out their brand new design for everyone. Here’s some info and a template to help you get the most out of it without pulling your hair out.
TWITTER HEADER SIZE
Recommended Dimensions (6-10-14)
Twitter’s recommended dimensions for header photo is 1500px in width X 500px in height. But the size that we’ve found works really well is:
- 1500px (width) X 421px (height)
Twitter’s new header setup can be a bit complicated. You will lose the original quality of your image after the upload, so I suggest you to save your work in its highest quality.
Another problem is, the whole content of your image won’t fit in the header since it automatically gets cropped and upscaled for some reason, so you need to know the “visible” and “invisible” areas to make sure your followers can view what you want them to see on your header photo. Here’s the template I’ve made:

- This template has been tested in different screen resolutions and in Twitter app using iPhone (5).
- Do not add anything in the “invisible areas” or they will not show up.
- You may still use the “invisible on iPhone app” parts but I suggest not to put anything important in those areas.
