Why settle for the same old Twitter header everyone else has? It’s time to make your Twitter account stand out with a creative, personalized header! Here are 20 ideas to get you started.
1. Your current location.
If you’re in Seattle, show the Space Needle or some other landmark that’s unique to where you live. If you’re on vacation somewhere far away, share a photo of yourself on the beach!
2. Businesses and products can use headers to promote their brand.
For example, if your business is a pet store, give people a sneak peek at the pets they can adopt. If you’re selling yoga pants or another product, show them off in your header.
3. Add personal details and preferences.
Do you love to read? Show off your book collection. Are you a tea drinker who loves cats? Include both of those things in your header!
4. Show off a hobby.
Do you make jewelry? Paint? Sing? Include photos of yourself at work or play to give people a deeper insight into who you are.
5. Share a message that speaks to your followers.
For example, if someone is going through a tough time, let them know they’re not alone. Or, if you just want to show off your cat, why not tell people that your other pets are doing well?
6. Make a silly header to make people laugh.
Put yourself in an awkward position. Wear crazy glasses or hats. Do something goofy! People will love it and be sure to share the laughter with their other followers.
7. Use quotes in your header.
Quotes are a great way to share some insight into who you are or the things that inspire you. You could quote yourself or quote someone else!
8. Get artsy!
Do something unique with your header by creating chalk art, crafting clay figures, or painting on canvas. This is a great way to show off your creativity.
9. Try out different colors and designs for your header.
For example, if you usually use a white background, try black instead! If none of these work for you, there’s always the option to stick with the classic blue.
10. Use an image that represents who you are.
Do you have a favorite quote, book series, or item of clothing? Include a photo in your header that showcases your favorite things.
11. Stay organized with a To-Do list.
If you find yourself constantly checking off tasks on a to-do list, share it with your followers! It’s guaranteed to help them stay on track, too.
12. Go on an adventure!
If you have a favorite place you visit or thing you do, share your adventures with your followers in the form of a header! For example, if your city is hosting some sort of festival, include it in your header so people can find out more about it.
13. Share a life motto.
Do you have your own personal philosophy about life? You can share it through a quote or by making a statement in your header.
14. Use an Instagram photo to show off what’s going on in your life.
This is a quick and easy way to let people know what’s new with you! And if that picture is particularly special, write a caption explaining why.
15. Keep it consistent!
Maybe you’re really into cats, or maybe you’re always checking off items on your to-do list. Don’t stray from what works for you! By keeping things the same in your header, people will recognize your account right away without having to look very hard.
16. Include your hobbies.
Do you have a particular hobby that people can follow along with? If so, include photos of yourself doing the things you love in your header! And if, for some reason, you don’t have enough images to create a full header, consider adding an emoji instead.
