Make Your Twitter Profile Transparent
03.25.2011 14 Comments
Most newbie-tweeters log on via the native website, http://www.twitter.com. And since some people would say that twitter’s UI (user interface) is rather simple, is there something you could do to enhance the look-and-feel or perhaps impress your followers? Apparently, there is! Try to make your profile page transparent.
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 http://twitter.com/settings/design
Step 2. Highlight and copy the code
Click on the address bar once and press backspace. Paste the code and hit Enter.
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!
