Twitter Cartoon Video Shows How to Set Up Profile, Header Pictures

Mashable

Twitter released a how-to video on Friday with tips on how to best dress up your page with header, profile and background pictures.

Although these steps may seem elementary to the Twitter lovers of the world, the social network is still growing its user base and many newer users are likely still trying to get a hold on how the platform works. (Even Pope Benedict XVI is gearing up to launch his own personal account).

In response, the company has posted a short and sweet YouTube clip that walks you through how to add pictures to an account page.

Here's a quick rundown: Visit the settings icon at the top of the your account and click "Edit Profile." Here, you can upload a picture or take one directly from your computer's webcam. You can also scale and position the picture based on how you want it displayed.

In September, Twitter rolled out a new header photo feature which is displayed across the top of a profile page. In the same “Edit Profile” section, you can upload a header and scale it to size. Meanwhile, the “Design” tab in “Edit Profile” hosts where you can add a background picture. You can select from some of the highlighted wallpapers or upload your own to reflect your personality, brand or interests.

Changes can also be made via mobile devices with the "Me" tab, following the instructions above.
