Last month, I posted an article on “The Power of the Twitter Background,” which was basically about how to make the most of your background to promote your image. I have gotten a couple of emails on this, so I thought it would be helpful to provide a little more information. There are a some services that allow you to make custom or semi-custom twitter backgrounds for free. I haven’t used these, so I am just providing these without reviewed. One free site is twitbacks, which after signing up, allows you to created a branded background. There are plenty more free sites, so do some searching and see what you find.
A site that customizes for a fee is mytweetspace.com. I have actually heard some good feedback about this site, so might be worth a try. Personalized backgrounds under 5 bucks and custom backgrounds under $80.
If you are at all creative, you can download my background here as a Photoshop file and customized it to your liking. The benefit of downloading mine as a template is only that is shows the positioning for the right and left sidebars. Enjoy. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
