While Facebook’s Timeline interface got a lot of criticism, the cover photo feature was pretty cool and Google+ grabbed it with the new design. Now, after Google+, here comes Twitter mimicking the feature.
Twitter calls it as ‘header photo’, to get yourself one, go to the Design tab of Twitter settings, scroll down to header section and you’ll be allowed to upload an image with a maximum resolution of 1252 X 626 px.
Apparently, there’s some default styling added to the image to increase readability of text on it.
You’ll also notice a ‘Me’ tab in the navigation bar on Twitter web.
You can still add a custom background and header photos are visible everywhere even on official Twitter clients for Android/iOS.
Twitter for Android and iPhone/iPad got updated today with a bunch of features (along with support for header photos) – On Mobile, your Twitter photo stream will be shown below your tweets.
On a whole, this update for Twitter makes it for a richer experience, both on Mobile and desktop.
The updates must be rolling out for everyone soon.
