Follow this simple procedure below.

Step 1. Log on to Twitter

Click on your account icon at the topmost-right portion, then choose “Settings”. Click on the “Design” tab. This leads you to

javascript:document.getElementById("user_profile_sidebar_fill_color").value = '';document.getElementById("title_theme").innerHTML;void(0);
Step 3. Paste the code


Click on the address bar once and press backspace. Paste the code  and hit Enter.

NOTE: Just in case your browser omits the word “javascript:”, you need to manually type it on the address bar before hitting the Enter key.

Step 4. Additional settings

Depending on your background image or design, you might need to change the color for your text settings to make it readable. Just click “Change design color” then choose “Text” section.

Choose your color which fits the background. (Tip: lighter color for a darker background and darker one for a lighter background)

Click “Save Changes”.

Step 5. See the results!

Finally click the “Home” tab to see the changes. If you’re still not happy with the results, you could always go back to the “Design” page by clicking the “Back” command on your browser and make further adjustments.

That’s it – you now have a transparent side-bar! Visit my other twitter tips entry, too!
