Create a custom Twitter background

Setting up my twitter account, I found some great twitter background resources, so I thought I’d share them with you.

TwitterBacks has a handful of files & instructions to create your own professional looking twitter background.

Here’s a really stunning tutorial on how to create a multi-layered repeating background.

If you want to know exactly where on the page to put everything (how many pixels from the left & top edge etc), here are the recommended specifications (more here).

An ultimate guide to setting up your twitter background (I’m sure there’s an even-more-ultimate one floating around out there somewhere!)

Here are a few high quality backgrounds you can use.

A great list of links to resources where you can find, literally, hundreds of thousands of great images to use as your background.

This guy goes completely over the top! 37 steps to creating your own, hand drawn twitter background. Of course, you have to be an awesome artist (I’m not), but it’s pretty amazing to watch the details of someone else at work.

and if you want to get excited by different people’s backgrounds, Peerkr.net allows you to add a widget to your toolbar, which if you click it, removes all the twitter information from the page, so you can see the person’s entire background. Neat!
