Twitter is quickly becoming a hot spot for people and business of all kinds, including designers. Many designers now have twitter accounts so they can network with other designers on twitter and promote their work to a new audience. What I found interesting is, because of twitter a whole new niche of design has been created and that is Twitter backgrounds.
Because of the text limitations of Twitter people have quickly adapted and started using their Twitter backgrounds as a creative billboard. If designed correctly your Twitter background can include all sorts of important information about your business such as an extended bio, logo, contact information and so on. Plus since you can change the background and other settings in your account you can keep your branding consistent.
Many designers are now offering twitter background design services and some designers are Specializing in it and doing great business. Check out some of these random cool twitter backgrounds below to see what people have been doing to make the most of their Twitter accounts! I was surprised at how many large accounts had default or ugly backgrounds, but I suspect more and more people will get custom backgrounds in the near future.
