Twitter remove background images

Twitter have removed background images from Twitter profiles.

They’ve gone relatively quietly (perhaps because they haven’t gone entirely; backgrounds still seem to appear on list, collection and tweet pages) although we’re all quietly waiting to see whether Twitter have any plans to use this space differently.

When I first started managing Twitter accounts background images were important billboards for brand marketing. As Twitter usage has shifted from desktop to mobile, the value of that real estate has inevitably dropped.
