Twitter Tips: What your Twitter Pic says About You

There are some quite extraordinary profile pics on Twitter, from shop fronts to logos to fancy dress and more. But do you ever stop to think what the people talking to you would like to see - and what's going to make them listen to what you have to say.

If Twitter is about the conversation, surely you want to know who you're talking to? I for one block immediately anyone who doesn't have a picture I can relate to, and I far prefer to chat to people whose faces I can see.

If you're a household name, a major brand or store (such as ASOS) a national newspaper or you only tweet or retweet news on a specific subject (and have thousands of followers, such as @tweetsmarter) then you can get away with a logo or symbol that viewers will instantly recognise. If you're trying to establish yourself as an individual 'voice' on Twitter then for goodness sake let us see what you look like, we're far more likely to want to respond that way.................
