Twitter Makes Editing Your Profile Much Easier

By: Josh Wolford - May 31, 2013

Twitter has just made editing your profile much easier by adding inline editing for the profile picture, header photo, and basic information on the desktop.

Now, you can edit your profile inline (without having to go to a separate profile editing page). Just click the “edit profile” button on your “me” page and you’ll be able to change both your header and profile photos plus your bio, location, and website information.

Either click the image you wish to change and upload or even take a new photo – or you can drag and drop photos from your desktop. You gotta love some drag and drop.

If you’re on-the-go, you’ll still have to click the gear icon and then “edit profile” to make the aforemetioned changes. Plus, if you want to change your background photo on the desktop, you’ll need to go into you settings as well.

It’s a small change, but a good one. Ever since Twitter unveiled their new header photos, they’ve been pushing adoption pretty hard by suggesting users upload one when they first log in. And about the whole profile photo thing – look, if you still have an egg as your pic, you’re doing Twitter so wrong that you may as well just quit.

As Twitter has been known to do, they’re announcing the new profile editing features with a cartoon. Oh, Phillip.

    I am not sure why it took Twitter this long to do something so painfully obvious. They are like the last builder to put bathrooms on the inside of a house. Kudos to them.

    So finally Twitter made this happen. Don’t understand why it takes so long for Twitter to make this easy editing options.
