Twitter Image Size Cheat Sheet 2On the surface, Twitter seems like an extraordinarily simple site. But, as any frequent member will tell you, there’s plenty more to it than sending bite-sized text messages. If you really want to get the most out of Twitter, you should start with an effective profile page that takes advantage of the header and background space to display compelling images related to your brand.

Below, we’ve supplied you with all the different image dimensions necessary for creating a complete profile on Twitter. Be sure to keep this post bookmarked for future reference, and please share it with anyone that you think might need a profile makeover.

Twitter Image Size Cheat Sheet


  • While your profile and header images are displayed at resolutions significantly lower than the recommended size, you should always upload using the suggested dimensions to accommodate different screen sizes and devices.
  • The only limit on your background image comes from the 2MB maximum file size; however, you should avoid creating excessively large images. Otherwise, users with smaller screens may miss important marketing material.
  • You can do some pretty neat things with the 90W x 90H previews of your last six shared images. It’s a great place to put a call to action.
