New Twitter Layout
« on: April 21, 2014, 07:36:26 AM »
Anyone been forced onto the new Twitter page layout yet? 

I'm not sure I like it to be honest, but we'll have to get used to it I guess.  How have you customised your page?

I have not. More often than not I'm on Twitter is one form of iOS or another. I will have to keep an eye out for it though. If it means changing my profile page layout I won't mind. I enjoy the occasional change ;)

Cheers, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with, and perhaps it'll inspire me when I have to do mine.  I actually got offered to switch to the new layout yesterday, after I logged out and back in again.

I actually went ahead for my photography page. https://twitter.com/CameraCraniums  Not good is it. lol..

Nice! I just logged out and back in again ... Nothing. I'll wait and see what happens, when it happens. In the meantime you at least know the specs of the new Twitter and can prepare the Guitarist Guild Twitter profile page design ;)

Well, I think I do, if I remember the header pic should be 1500 x 500 and profile pic 400 x 400

but even if you make the images to the exact requirements, you still end up doing them over and over until they look right.  It's not very well thought out at all.  ;)

Hey, that's just showing off mate  :D , your new page looks fantastic.  :tup:  What the hell I'm going to come up with is beyond me atm, but I can guarantee it won't look as nice as yours.

It's prompting me to try it out again, but can't come up with any ideas.  Might do the switch and put up something temporary until I can make something better.

Haha! I got lucky. I used the same image I had on my previous Twitter page (I just had to resave it to a larger size). The image I use is pulled from a poster I made myself last year (actually, maybe 2012!). I've taken so many photos of my gear I don't know what to do with them all ;)

Looks really neat actually.  8)  I've still got to do something with my header image, like I said a temporary one for now.  I have tweaked it a bit https://twitter.com/GuitaristGuild  Might be a bit ott, but I'm finding it hard to get any inspiration atm.

You'll get there. And until you're happy, you've got something in place. I picked up something new looking at your profile page though ... Pinned tweets. I never go to my own profile and didn't know this was an option.

Yeah it's a neat feature, thought it would be nice to Pin those video tut's James posted, as he's worked hard on them for us.  Shame you can't pin more than one at a time though, but I guess that would take up the whole page.  A rotate pinned posts feature would be good.
