2. Twitter profile image size.

If you need further guidance with customising your profile, read Twitter’s tips for building up your profile. Or, if you’re looking for help troubleshooting with uploading your profile image, explore more detailed suggestions from Twitter’s help page.

While Adobe Express comes loaded with pre-made template sizes for you to choose from, we also know that sometimes you’ll have specific creative needs, like a Twitter profile photo.

Use the customised size option under resize in your Adobe Express workspace to enter precise measurements in pixels, inches or millimetres. In this case, type in 400px by 400px and you’ll have yourself the perfect canvas to make your customised profile image.

You can even drop a temporary circle outline graphic (with a 400px diameter) into your design to predict where the cropping will occur so you can optimise your image’s composition.

With Twitter Cards, you can use eye-catching imagery and video to drive conversion, create an engagement or start a conversation with your audience. There are several types of Cards:

Website Cards are used to link your audience to your website or a landing page. Make sure that you include a call-to-action in the copy of your tweet to direct your audience where you want them to go.

App cards are used to promote a mobile app in the Twitter feed and link your audience to connect with the app.

Direct Message Cards are used to motivate users to start a conversation with your brand’s chatbot in their direct message inbox. Creating an eye-catching card using imagery or video is the key to initiating this conversion.
