Twitter posts size and dimensions

Why are the correct Twitter post sizes and dimensions important even in 2023? Twitter has again changed its size guide for its posts. So, if you still know the 2:1 aspect ratio as the optimal size to post, you are missing it. Twitter is one of the biggest platforms where you can share your opinion in less than 280 characters.

Users tend to share their thoughts with or through an image. When you represent your ideas visually, people understand them more. Also, a post with an image is likely to get 3x more engagement than the one without an image. It explains the importance of posting the correct size; otherwise, the platform can reject your submission also.

With the revised interface and algorithms, this blog focuses on the updated post sizes and dimensions for Twitter. In addition, with the post size cheat sheet, we will also share some tips to market your post sizes and dimensions properly.

Apart from image sizes, it would only be better if you knew the right video size and dimensions, too, right?

Some Tips and Tricks for Twitter Post Sizes and Dimensions

For Twitter Profile Picture

  • For better brand recognition, we suggest you use a single profile picture for all your social media accounts.
  • Using a clear and professional image of yourself for your profile is best. Also, it would help if you try to have a solid background for your profile picture or one with minimum distractions.
  • Use a logo as your profile picture only if you are a business or company.

A profile picture is almost the first thing a user sees on your profile, so it must be spot-on. Your little effort to have a perfect profile image can go a long way for you.

For Twitter Header

  • First, you must choose a Twitter header that describes your business, brand, or niche. The header must be self-explanatory to build your online presence.
  • The second thing is that you should keep in mind that your profile picture will cover a small portion in the bottom left corner of your Twitter header. Meanwhile, try to keep that portion of the header blank so nothing gets hidden under the profile picture.
  • Also, your Twitter header should be compatible with all devices like mobiles, tablets, or desktops for a better impression. It means the header should have a flawless display regardless of screen size or dimension.

For Twitter Post Images

  • One of the most important things is that before posting the image on the original account, test the image or images on a personal account first. This way, you can note and correct the errors, if any.
  • Use multiple devices to test the images in different screen sizes and dimensions. But if you are short on time, you should test the images on a mobile device. Because people generally access social media platforms on their mobile phones.
  • Keep the important stuff of your images in the centre. It is important because Twitter might crop the edges of your images. So, it can save you extra efforts to optimize and upload the images again.

You can post four images in a Twitter post at once. If you upload two images, they will appear side by side. Their aspect ratio will be 7:8.

Dimensions for Two Twitter Post Images

If you upload three images, one image will appear larger than the other two. It is because the aspect ratio of the larger one will be 7:8, and the smaller one will have an aspect ratio of 4:7.
