The perfect Twitter profile can be the key to building your brand, influencing users and gaining loyal followers. A lot of planning and effort can help you set up an effective Twitter profile. You need to have the perfect name, profile photo, header, background design and bio. I have shared how to get each of these features right to help you set up the perfect Twitter profile…

1. Twitter Name:

There are three main things you need to keep in mind while choosing a twitter name; it needs to be relevant, short and unique. If it’s your personal profile use your name and if that’s not available use something similar to it and if it’s your business name use your business name.

Keeping it short is important too as it will make it easy for someone to add your handle to their tweets. Keeping it short will increase your chances of being squeezed within the one hundred and forty character limit. And keeping it unique will make it easy for someone to find your profile when they perform a search. Check out this post for more tips on choosing the perfect twitter name.

Your Twitter URL is usually http://twitter.com/yourtwittername. So the next time someone searches for your company or for you they will easily find your Twitter profile. If your Twitter name is something completely different from your real name it could make it hard for people to find you.
