Twitter Design Scoring Considerations
Picture: For company accounts, a clear, legible logo that fits in the Twitter picture dimensions. For individuals, a current head shot of the person.
Background Image: An original image that promotes the brand identity, or the personal brand of the individual. Background may provide additional information, but should fit within the Twitter viewing space. Alternatively, a coordinating background color may be used.
Design Colors: Background color (if image is not used), text, links, sidebar, and sidebar border are customized in brand colors. Text displays legibly (e.g. dark text on light background).
Name: Identifies person managing account or name of company.
Location: Identified by city and state.
Web site: Identified; links to a relevant landing page (home page, blog, etc.)
Bio: Descriptive of the person or brand. Includes important key words relevant to the brand or the person’s expertise and/or interests.
Other: Aesthetics and originality of design. Coordination with overall online brand image.
