The most beautiful Twitter banners ever that you have to see today
It’s time to reveal a huge secret: we love Twitter. If you do too, you’ve probably considered it to promote your business. Twitter is a great place for advertising with over 4.65 billion active users, according to Kepios. With all those people Tweeting away around 500 million posts every day, one definitely needs to find a way to stand out in the feed.
Twitter is all about short copy. Suppose you pair that with a thumb-stopping visual…
The question then becomes — how do you come up with a fascinating Twitter aesthetic that appeals to your customers and projects your brand identity? You can take the pressure off and start with a template, using an online graphic design editor. And you can start by simply creating your Twitter background image.
But what about the inspiration for your next visual? In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the best Twitter banners that please the eyes, and see how they can inspire your next designs.
