Open any Twitter page, and the first thing that catches your eye is the Twitter header. But in spite of its prominent place at the top of the page, far too many Twitter users miss the opportunity to display a banner that expresses their brand identity and sets the tone for their account.
Given the Twitter header dimensions—1500 pixels wide by 500 pixels high—many people end up with headers where the subject matter is cut off unattractively, or they just settle for the default header which says nothing about their business, personal style, or interests.
If you want to make the best use of your Twitter header, you're in the right place. Today we'll introduce you to a tool that's designed to take all the stress and guesswork out of creating cool Twitter headers: the Twitter Header Maker from Placeit.
The Twitter Header Maker allows you to create stunning Twitter headers in the right dimensions in a matter of minutes, but it also offers an exceptionally large selection of premium Twitter header templates that are easy to customise.
Today we'll share 28 of the best Twitter headers for business and personal use.
