42 Twitter Backgrounds

Some of you have noticed that we just recently started using twitter, it’s a great tool. After 2 weeks or so of using twitter, I have found some really cool twitter pages. With another tool on the web comes another place designers can take advantage of by adding their design skills. I was also looking for inspiration for my twitter page, I am still working on customizing my own twitter profile. I have compiled a post of my finds.. enjoy! Don’t forget follow us on twitter.

      Ok, we were convinced – and have been busy investing in a custom twitter page.

      Prior to this post most of the examples I have been shown looked more like undergraduate projects, but some of these really do demonstrate the value in investing in good design.

    • May 13, 2011 at 5:54 am

      Great designs but we have to change the way we design as Twitter changed its interface

    • May 5, 2011 at 5:03 am

      I am working on my company’s Twitter account.
      I was searching for best Twitter background on Google and land here. This is really nice list for Twitter backgrounds. I also want to design attractive one for my Twitter profile. I forwarded this post to my web designer. BTW: Thanks for your great list.

    • May 3, 2011 at 3:04 pm

      Truly fantastic

      These pics give me some idea how I can go about creating a custom background for my Twitter account.


    • May 3, 2011 at 1:32 am

      I had a bit of fun with mine, and even included a secret message for anyone who views the background jpg – http://twitter.com/dieselLaws

    • April 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

      Check out this background please ;) http://twitter.com/#!/adabeo

    • March 27, 2011 at 1:09 am

      I got a pretty good idea now on which design to go through for my profile, thank you!

    • March 18, 2011 at 6:03 am

      Some of these are so amazing – love how a lot of them use colour and shapes that really pop. I can see how Twitter background designing can become an obsession

    • March 14, 2011 at 5:51 am

      Great designs i will definitely use them in my twitter profile hats off what a great designs.No words to explain about your designs.

    • March 12, 2011 at 12:26 pm

      I dont use twiter but if i did some of these would be cool to use.

    • January 6, 2011 at 11:56 am

      Great designs but we have to change the way we design as Twitter changed its interface.

    • January 5, 2011 at 9:22 am

      nice designs, i’ll use one of them on my twitter :)

    • December 2, 2010 at 11:06 pm

      Great list of twitter designs!!
      Always neat how designers work with new mediums…

      I think if you were to do an updated list you should include some of my favourites (or at least take a look and think about them…)

      Thanks for these examples, I’ve been meaning to create on for myself. Now that I have some inspiration i’m off to create my own.

    • February 23, 2010 at 2:53 pm

      Nice post, thanks for sharing these samples.
      I found a vector template as well.

      I know this is an old blog post, but maybe, you could include me in the 50 twitter backgrounds.


    • July 11, 2009 at 9:24 am

      hope u like this one too ..

    • July 8, 2009 at 7:22 pm

      These are great but since most people (from what I’ve read) still have screens that are 1024 x 764, then most all of these designs’ main elements will be hidden behind the twitter content area.

      I have seen some twitter backgrounds that were designed to work with a range of different size screens having the most important branding elements show up on most of the screen sizes. These are probably the most useful.

      Maybe you can make another collection list of some of these type — flexible twitter backgrounds.

    • July 8, 2009 at 11:14 am

      A great collection of high quality backgrounds. Thanks for putting up the thumbnails. So much easier then having to click on each link to actually check out the image.

    • March 11, 2009 at 9:31 am

      Highly Impressive collection. Thanks for sharing

    • March 8, 2009 at 10:53 pm

      Even when I’m on my 17″/1920×1200 MBP I don’t have my browser window big enough for most of these to look right, let alone when I’m on my netbook (which is most of the time). Surprises me that otherwise incredibly talented designers fail to get this one right.

    • March 8, 2009 at 8:06 am

      KrisColvin should not be on this list either. She jacked her layout from the Livejournal community mintyapple where boundaries (I think) posted numerous Twitter layouts and color codes.

    • March 5, 2009 at 12:13 am

      It’s my turn now: http://twitter.com/ignaciogggg

    • March 3, 2009 at 6:45 pm

      It is a shame that we miss out on so many of these backgrounds because we’re too busy and must replace actual browsing with tiny bits of software to throw feeds at us. Maybe a metaphor for life? ;)

    • March 2, 2009 at 7:18 am

      Nice Collection, here is an interesting one

      man so many great looks

    • February 27, 2009 at 2:50 pm

      this is shameless suggestion. :P
      But i think it is qualified :D


      thanks in advance if listed :D

    • February 26, 2009 at 2:15 pm

      These are some great backgrounds and some great people to follow also.


    • February 26, 2009 at 12:50 pm

      mine is also very minimalist:


    • February 26, 2009 at 12:47 pm

      very nice. you can see the personalities that emerge from each of them. i like how much you can personalize it.

    • February 26, 2009 at 12:41 pm

      Oooh, these are awesome! I made a background for my twitter too! Have a look? http://twitter.com/folksylady

    • February 26, 2009 at 12:35 pm

      Wow these are all amazing – I was struggling with how big/small to make my background but found a post with a downloadable twitter template in .psd format – pretty nifty as a starting point.

      You can download it here.

    • February 26, 2009 at 12:11 pm

      Thanks for adding my background. One of my followers told me about your list today. C heers. Kim

    • February 26, 2009 at 11:56 am

      All great comments, there are a lot of twitter backgrounds, I didn’t include.. but thats ok, thats what these comments are for.. we might be able to pile up a part 2 post.. keep them coming

    • February 26, 2009 at 11:52 am

      Looks like I’m gonna have ta take a Photoshop CS3 course just so my Twitter page will be chic & customized! So many great ideas here! Thx~

    • February 26, 2009 at 11:26 am

      Good background collection. Backgrounds are good for when people check out your profile but most heavy Twitter users then move to alternate clients like Twhirl and Tweetdeck. I saw your posting say you were new to Twitter. We run the largest catalog listing of Twitter tools. Might help you grow more.

    • February 26, 2009 at 11:24 am

      How on earth did you miss this one.

    • February 26, 2009 at 11:24 am

      Hey, mine is pretty nifty I thought…


    • February 26, 2009 at 11:23 am

      Wow….I really love looking at these backgrounds. Those are really cool. So now I c=goota hustle. I feeling a bit left out. LOL

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:42 am

      Some of those are pretty nice. Unfortunately 99% of their readers won’t be able to see them, since most people don’t have super high res screens like shown here (and if they do, I’m sure most run their browser no wider than 1024px)

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:32 am

      Wow! Nice roundup…in love with some of the designs!! Thanks for including mine!

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:25 am

      great backgrounds :) I’ll redesign mine if I happen to have the time

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:23 am

      i am missing from the list, very sad :(

      just kidding. cool list with cool background

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:18 am

      WOW!! And i thought my background was amazing… :-)

    • February 26, 2009 at 10:17 am

      One of my favorites is the coffee god’s twitter feed, http://twitter.com/coffeegeek – the white cup and beans are awesome.

      nice collection! i found this a while back


    • February 26, 2009 at 2:09 am

      Quite a nice collection!
      Just a small advice: change the title in your header, that’s not corresponding to the post’s title ;)

    • February 26, 2009 at 1:43 am

      What a great idea. It’s so interesting to see the effect of them all side by side, or bottom to top as it were. I’m humbled to be in such great company. Thanks for including my background.

    • February 25, 2009 at 8:47 pm

      Great post! Thanks for the inspiration.

    • February 25, 2009 at 8:15 pm

      @T actually I did that image for the Pixelmator release :) that image in their site was done by me. I think I can use it then ;) i’m working on another bg though.
