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.
