  • You can add any image you like as long as it is less than 800k.
    In most circumstances, you want your background to be large enough not to tile. The total image size should be around 1600px wide by 1200px tall. This takes care of almost all screen resolutions.
    If you build a left-hand column (which is popular on Twitter), make sure that it is small enough not to be covered up by the central Twitter content. Many designers suggest smaller than 200px.
