Designing a Custom Twitter Template
Categories: Social Media

I recently launched my new website, and decided that I wanted my Twitter profile page to have the same look and feel as the site. I figured that repurposing the site design and uploading a new background to Twitter would take just a few minutes.

As it turned out, it was incredibly challenging to get the dimensions of the page and columns correct. I searched Google for this information but the dimensions that others provided did not work, and I could not find these guidelines on Twitter.com. I had to use trial and error to get it right, and ended up spending a couple of hours on what should have ideally taken a few minutes. So, in case anyone else would like to create a custom background, I decided to post the dimensions for the Twitter profile page.

Based on a display resolution of 1280 x 800, the canvas size of the Twitter page is 1265px wide and 700 px high.

Within the page, there are essentially three columns created by the “main” Twitter box, which lies in the center of the page and includes the sidebar which displays your bio. Here are the dimensions of these three columns:

Left edge of page to Left edge of Twitter box: 230 px
Width of Twitter box: 790 px (230+790=1020 px)
Right edge of Twitter box to Right edge of window: 245 px (1020+245=1265px=total page width)

Hope this helps!

    “To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.” Phyllis Theroux

    As of the modern era, people depend smartphones and the internet for communication; very

    sad, but true. Given the quick impatience of people today,

    you would be surprised to find that there are still some loyalists

    who prefer the art of informal letter writing.

    Unfortunately, many are unaware of the actual technique of informal letter writing, and face a difficult

    time writing one. The article below addresses some related pointers

    that will clear all your confusion. It should be written on the right

    hand corner of the page. Writing this address is optional, because one may feel that the recipient knows

    you well enough, so perhaps there is no necessity to wrote the address.

    However, it’s not necessary that the recipient will remember

    your address always. So, it’s better that you write the address.

    If both the receiver and sender are from the same country, then there is no need to write your country’s name.

    But if both belong to separate countries, then the sender should also write

    down the name of their country. After the address, leave a line and write the date.

    The date shows when the letter was written (obviously).

    The most common way to start off an informal letter is with a ‘Dear’.

    Since this letter is meant for your friends or family, there is no need to greet them as ‘Sir’ or ‘Madam’.

    Write the name after that and then, add a comma. Fr example, ‘Dear Mike,


    If the receiver if very close to you, such as your best

    friend or your sibling, then instead of a ‘Dear’, you could

    probably start off with a ‘Hey!’ or ‘Hi!’. Keep in mind that this is for people who

    belong to the same age group as you do. Don’t write

    ‘Hey Dad!’ (Unless of course you are very very close to him).

    While writing the main content of the letter,

    keep the following in mind:

    Paragraphs should be indented.

    While writing the letter be as friendly as possible. But, don’t go overboard.

    Do keep in mind to whom you are writing the letter.

    Don’t write, ‘Hey dude! What’s up?’ to your father.

    At the same time, don’t make the letter boring.

    Punctuations, spellings, and grammar errors should be avoided at all costs.

    Wrong use of punctuations can change the entire meaning of what you

    are trying to convey. Things such as ‘How are you hope

    you enjoyed your holidays. Mike going to New York yesterday’ makes so sense.

    It will only confuse the reader. So, be careful while writing your letter.

    Use active voice; it makes your letter sound more conversational and makes it more interesting to read.

    It seems like the person is conversing with you,

    face to face.

    Questions in your letter act as a good base on which you can write your letter

    on. Also, it motivates the reader to reply.

    Close with a Compliment:

    After writing the letter, sign off in a friendly manner such as ‘Love,

    ‘ or ‘Missing you loads’, ‘Love you forever,’, etc. Don’t forget to add a comma after the compliment.

    Add your name after that.

    Sometimes, while in a hurry, we often forget

    to include something in the letter.

    Letter to a friend inviting him for your birthday party.

    12 XYZ Lane,

    PO Box: 1234,How are you my friend? It has been some time since we met.

    How was your trip to Africa? Hope you enjoyed all the Safari trips?

    I received all the postcards, which you had sent

    me from there. Thanks a bunch! I loved each of them.

    Hey! Guess what? My Aunt Letty has organized an early birthday party for me, and

    she has asked me to invite all my friends. You know very well that no party

    of mine is complete without you. So, please be at my place

    this Sunday. The party doesn’t start till 4, but do come

    early so then we can go fishing at the lake. Bring Andy along with you too.

    Don’t be late.

    Hope you parents are all right? Give them my regards.

    And, wish you all the best for your baseball match today.

    Miss you loads pal. See you this Sunday.

    Well, now that you know all about informal letter writing,

    and the informal letter format and style, go put aside that phone or that Internet and write a letter to your friend in your own handwriting.

    I assure you, there is nothing more touching, more memorable, than receiving a letter from your loved ones, written in their own hands.
