With Twitter being a real-time information network and social search engine, all in one, it’s imperative that you make sure your profile is 100% complete and customized. Click on the “gear” image at the top right of your Twitter screen, then click on “Settings and Profile”, and begin customizing your Twitter page.
First, you’ll need to upload a photo, either of yourself or the logo of your business (with Twitter, it’s best to use a photo of yourself). Profile photos should be 128 x 128 pixels.
Then, upload a header image, which can be your logo, a picture of you and your team (if you have one) or something that portrays your business or what you do. Be sure that your header image is 1252 × 626 pixels or no more than 5MB in size.
Next, you’ll want to customize your name, location, and your business website. All of this information will be visible on your Twitter profile.
When customizing your bio, be sure to be as descriptive as possible, and try to include the infamous #hashtag too. A detailed description will allow others to understand who you are and what you do, while the usage of #hashtags will make it easier for anyone to search for someone like yourself, to find you. And finally, decide whether or not you’d like to connect through Facebook. If you do this all of your messages that you post within Twitter will also be displayed on your Facebook page.
