How to customize your Twitter Profile

How to customize your Twitter Profile. Social media for business is meant to be about connecting with a brand or business on a personal level, direct business to follower contact. It helps build confidence in your business if potential customers get to know you on a human level. I really like the new feature that allows you to Pin a tweet at the top of your profile, I will be using this to my advantage. When choosing a photo/banner/cover to use for my Twitter header,  I simply re-sized my facebook cover photo to give Goosie Girl a uniform appearance (branding) on social media and across the internet.
