Have you noticed your Twitter page looks totally different? The reason for the makeover is that Twitter’s new “look” fully incorporates responsive web design (RWD).
What is RWD, you ask? To put it in simple terms, it’s a type of web design that allows a website to adjust its size and layout to any screen on any device. Since we access websites across such a wide variety of platforms these days (including desktop computers, cell phones, and tablets), RWD makes sure a site is pleasing to the eye and navigable, no matter what device you use to view it.
But as you can imagine, this makes coming up with a standardized template pretty difficult. If you’re having trouble finding header dimensions out there that work for your updated Twitter profile, you’re not alone. Until Twitter releases its official template size or offers another solution, we thought we would come up with our own template design that is at least functional on a variety of devices, and looks much better than the existing templates out there when viewed on a desktop computer screen.
Without any further ado, here is a 2014 Twitter header template that should work — at least until the next Twitter design change.
