Twitter Image Size 2021

In May 2021 the Twitter Image Size was updated. Twitter has been trying out a few changes over the previous months. Now it is being rolled out to all users, both on iOS and Android

Is it important to use the correct image size?

The simple answer to this is yes! It will make your Twitter account look more professional. Similarly, more engaging.

It avoids your image being stretched to “fit the box” on Twitter. You will find that having the correct images size means people will see exactly what you want them to see.

Creating Twitter Images

It’s not just the Twitter Image Size to think about. There are other things to consider when creating your images for Twitter. And for other social media images too.

Firstly, the best thing you can do is use your own images. They are always going to work best. If you do need to use stock photo’s make sure you have the right to use them.

In other words, don’t just go to Google and think because the image is online you can use it! Pick the wrong image and you may be sued!
