How to enhance your Twitter profile using Twitbacks
Twitter is arguably the most popular social networking and microblogging tool around. An entire industry has sprung up around this phenomenon, with various software developers producing applications that allow you to schedule tweets, find like-minded Tweeples and more.
TwitBacks is one such application, allowing users to create a customised background for their Twitter profile page. You can choose to expand your Twitter profile to include a photo, links to websites, and even a logo. Why limit yourself to the 160-character Twitter bio when you can use the «wasted» space at the side of your Twitter profile?
Go to the TwitBacks webpage
Surf to the TwitBacks webpage at www.twitbacks.com then click on «Get Started Here» or «Create a Twitter background for free.» This will take you to the first page of the background wizard.
Edit your details
Customize your TwitBacks background page by adding your name, company name, your website URL, and a short blurb about yourself. Unlike your Twitter bio, this blurb does not have a character limit, so feel free to express yourself.
Choose a category for your Twitter profile
Choose from a dropdown list of services that best describes your Twitter profile. Don’t worry if you can’t find a category. This is simply for TwitBacks’ use and will not appear in your background.
Add a photo
This is your chance to include a photo that’s bigger than your thumbnail on your Twitter profile page. Unlike in your Twitter profile, this photo will not be cropped. However, TwitBacks will shrink the photo to fit in your background page. You can also choose to include a logo. You will have the option of placing the photo and/or logo above or below your blurb.
Add contact details
You can choose to include your phone number and/or email address in your background page. You will also be given the option to include links to other social networking websites like Facebook, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, MySpace and more.
Change the appearance
You can choose from a list of different backgrounds on the right side of the page. Most of the backgrounds are free, but you can choose to further customise your background by uploading your own photo. However, this option costs $2.99. You also have the option of changing the font size and style as well as the width of your content block. Simply scroll to the bottom of the webpage and modify the advanced settings.
Create and upload your new Twitter background
Click «Continue» at the bottom of the page to create your new Twitter background. You can choose to download the TwitBacks background page and then upload it to Twitter yourself, or you can use TwitBacks automated service. All TwitBacks bacground pages come with the TwitBacks logo. You can choose to remove this logo for a fee of $4.99.
