Today I updated my Twitter profile. As I was working on freshening up Debt-free Scholar, I realized that my Twitter stream was still using a default background! Recognizing the opportunity for improvement, I decided to make a custom Twitter background. Using a few of my favorite profiles as examples, I renovated my profile, adding some new information and even making my Twitter page design match Debt-free Scholar.
The new background includes:
- A short welcome message – In a short welcome section, I greet my Twitter visitors and explain how and why I use Twitter.
- Two of my websites – Just below the welcome message, I list the addresses of two of my websites. Actually, I have about four websites (DebtFreeScholar.com, TheBlogReviewer.com, FamilyReadingReviews.com, and CheeryArts.com), but I don’t want to overload my Twitter visitors with too much information.
- Social networking info – On the right side of my Twitter feed, I wrote a short section explaining what social networks I have joined and how to connect with me on them.
That’s all! I thought about adding more, but ultimately I decided that it is best to leave some empty space to keep the screen from becoming too “busy”.
What Do You Think?
Now its your turn. I have explained the changes, and now I ask you to tell me what you think about my changes.
