I’m going to show you with some pictures to help – how to change your banner, header or cover picture as we know it. I’m going to use my other twitter account as after the first time it looks slightly different.
How to add your banner image on Twitter.com
1) Click on the Cog
2) Click on settings
3) Click Design
4) Click Change Header
5) Upload an image
Image minimum dimensions are 1252 x 626 <- it says minimum here but I’ve not used 1252 at all.
Maximum file size is 5MB
6) Click Save – this might take a little while
7) Save changes at the bottom
8) Click Me - which is now at the top, next to Discover, to see your picture
And is done – you will notice that now your direct messages are also available by clicking the envelope on the ME tab.
For the new addition in the iPad application you need to download the update.
How to add your Banner image using the iPad application.
You need to start this time on the ME the tab
1) Click the Cog
2) Edit Profile
4) Choose photo – move and scale
And thats it.
I think I like the changes – but I am going to have to change my twitter backgrounds now as they just don’t look right.
Direct Messages on Twitter with the subject line as

your in this
Hey this person is writing cruel things about you
wow your busted in this video
fb is offering freee apple ipadds 2
Hey this user is writing cruel things about you
OMG your in this
The first thing we notice is, that most of the time, the grammar or the spelling is incorrect – Some lately are coming through with a link that looks like it comes from Facebook – so this is fooling even more people than before – I am seeing these posts almost every day.
What happens when you click on a scam link
Normally what happens is that you appear to be logged out of Twitter and made to log in again – and HEY Presto – the scammers have your details and password – and start sending out DM’s – they are quite clever only doing one every couple of days so it takes a while for you to notice or for someone to complain.
Have I been hacked
You have only been hacked as you call it, because you clicked a link like this.
If you have clicked on a link like this, then you need to change your password and just check in your auth to make sure that you haven’t authorised something that shouldn’t be authorised.
How to stop getting Phished by a hacker
Don’t click links that are dmed to you unless you have spoken to the person and they have said they are going to send you a link – there is no reason for anyone to DM links, twitter is about keeping it out in the open. Especially annoying is those auto DM’s but thats another story, I just delete all DM’s that I wasn’t expecting to receive, this will hopefully protect me from these scams, but they are getting clever with the Facebook links – whats next!?
