Boost engagement by updating your Twitter header regularly

Keep your Twitter profile fresh and encourage engagement by regularly updating your Twitter header. Our team of awesome designers are constantly adding fresh and inspiring Twitter header layouts to our library for you to try. Simply choose your favourite layout and change the images, fonts and colors to your liking.

Never worry about image dimensions

Between social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, it’s hard to keep up with the correct image dimensions for every network. All of our layouts are pre formatted to the optimum size for each network, meaning your Twitter header will always look its best without any tricky image formatting.

Use premium images or upload your own

As well as uploading your own images for free, Canva gives you access to over 1 million premium images, graphics and illustrations. Many of these images are free, while the rest are all offered at a very competitive price. This allows you to create professional graphics at a fraction of the cost of hiring a designer.


Twitter header dimensions should be 1500 x 1500 pixels. Leave enough space at the bottom left for your profile picture, which is 400 x 400 pixels, and keep in mind that part of your photo is usually cropped to fit the banner.

Use the header to display your professional work, create brand consistency or showcase your message. Experiment with texture, patterns and negative space. If you use font in your header, make sure it’s easy to read and stands out from the background.

You’ll need to add the text to your header design before uploading it to your profile. Use a design tool to type in a message, quote or couple of lines that help followers get to know you. You can edit your design any time.
