Your new Twitter profile can tell 13 different stories

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 TweetsPinned Tweets and Filtered Tweets.

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
