In This Chapter
Twitter has evolved over the past few years to highlight the user and his interests. Visitors to your Twitter home page now find an eye-catching header image that draws the attention to your avatar and bio. This setup is especially helpful for users who want to find people to follow who have common interests. The Twitter page now allows users to add personality and passion to their profiles.
Despite a striking header image, you don’t have to spend all your time at Twitter.com itself. Tools and applications, or apps, enhance your experience and take your page from ho-hum to something that’s intriguing, personal, and unique — and the best part is that you don’t have to be on Twitter to use them.
In this chapter, we discuss the tools that can help make your Twitter experience even better, and we also suggest ways to take your Twitter profile page to a whole new level.
Don’t overlook customizing your Twitter profile page, or else it’s just a page with no personality, giving others no reason to follow you. You see, unless potential followers know you, they don’t have much to go on. So they want to click your profile page and know immediately whether you’re worthy of a follow.
