TWITTER COVER PHOTO SIZE JANUARY 2018: TEMPLATE
YOU MIGHT HAVE NOTICED THAT TWITTER RECOMMENDS UPLOADING A COVER PHOTO THAT IS 1500 X 500. WHAT THEY DON’T MENTION IS THAT SIZE GETS CROPPED.
We’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time recently figuring out the ideal dimensions for Twitter Cover, Profile, and Sidebar sizes. Googling it results in a mass of conflicting recommendations – mainly out-of-date.
According to Twitter, the ideal size is 1,500px by 500px, or 1.91:1 ratio. For most devices.
HOW DOES TWITTER CROP COVER PHOTOS?
Below is our 1500px x 500px cover photo. You’ll see Twitter displays the full image on mobile and crops the photo on desktop. The shaded area in the middle is the safe area for all devices.
