Twitter recently announced the launch of a new profile design.
If you’d like to know more about the new profile dimensions and its features, John Rampton has done a great job in his post for Search Engine Journal where he explains in detail the dimensions for: The Header Photo, Profile Photo and Background image and the new features: Best Tweets, Pinned Tweets and Filtered Tweets.
If you’d like to upgrade your twitter profile to the new look, get it here.
However, this post is not so much about the dimensions or features of the new profile. Instead, I’m going to show you how your new twitter profile can tell 13 different stories for you.
1. Your Bold Logo – Showcase your Company Logo like B2B Marketing in bold, colorful, offcentered, hard to miss style telling your brand story
2. Says a lot about you – Showcase the Brand You like Pam Moore that says she’s a speaker, a trainer, a consultant, author, CEO and Forbes top 10 social media influencer.
3. Your Tagline – Showcase your Company’s tagline like B2B Infographics so that it’s easy to tell what your company does or what pain point are you trying to solve.
4. Be Different – Showcase your new Twitter profile in an uncommon comic book style like Adweek. I’m sure that’ll catch the attention of your existing fans and help you gain new ones.
5. Highlight an Event – Give a sneak peek of your upcoming event like the Demand Success Conference for Marketing and PR by Vocus.
6. What you’re known for – Showcase what people value you for like Robert Scoble, who is known for technology and his opinions.
7. You’re on the Map – Tell your story of how much you’ve grown and how successful your Brand is around the globe like Hootsuite.
8. Photo Effects – I like how Social Media Week talks about humanity and technology coming together in a Photoshopped image of our modern world.
9. Photo Collage – Weave tiny story snippets into one big story like Spredfast‘s new twitter profile.
10. Your Keywords – Let your new twitter profile tell your Brand’s story by showcasing your top 10 keywords like the CMO.com‘s new twitter profile.
11. The Process – Talk about Your product’s process and how it provides a viable solution like Nimble.
12. Be Yourself – Highlight your story with what you love like Andy Newbom.
13. Use icons – Social Media Today is known for social conversations and so the use of social talk icons like speech bubbles is quite appropriate.
I hope that these examples have given you enough inspiration to dazzle your new twitter profile. We’d love to see them so show them off in the comments.
