Customizing your design

You can customize your design theme so that users who click to view your Tweet detail pages will see it. Other than your theme color, your design theme will not be visible on your profile or Home timeline

To customize your own design:

If you want to upload your own background image or customize the color scheme of your Tweet detail page, follow the steps below.

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Go to your Settings and click on the Design tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Customize your own section.
  4. Click on Change background to upload a background image. Images justify to the top left of the screen. You cannot stretch your image to fit. It will display as the size you uploaded (file must be smaller than 2MB).
  5. Check the box to Tile background if you want your picture to repeat across the background.
  6. Choose whether your Background position will be left, center or right.
  7. If your image isn't very large, choose the background color that will show behind the image.
  8. Choose a theme color.
  9. Click Save changes.
Note: Background images must be in PNG, GIF, or JPG format, smaller than 2MB. If your image's file size is too large, use an image editing program or web app to shrink the image. Animated GIFs are not supported as background images

To customize your design with a premade theme:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Go to your Settings and click on the Design tab. 
  3. You will see a Pick a premade theme menu, select a premade theme by clicking on the design you would like to use.
  4. Click Save changes at the bottom of the page when you're done. It's as simple as that!
