Using Images So People Will Notice

Using Images

    • Format image to the ratio of 2:1
    • The best size image is 1024 x 512
    • Properly formatted images will show up in its entirety in the timeline.
    • Using any other aspect ratio looks stupid and only shows a partial picture.

Cropped Bad Better Image

You tell me which one looks better?

It took nothing more than the editing program that came with my computer to cut and paste into a 1024 x 512-pixel frame. Click on each image to view on Twitter.

    • Next, I make sure that after entering my text, I have 31 characters remaining. 24 for the image plus a seven-character margin so when the post is retweeted the post won’t be truncated.
    • Happy tweeting
