5 Fabulous Fall Patterns For Your Twitter Header Image

Fall leaves

Last week Twitter unveiled a redesign that introduced big header images featured atop people's profiles on the social-networking site. Similar to Facebook's Timeline banner image, the new format gives users more control over the look and feel of their feeds. "The redesign definitely puts visuals front and center," said one critic. Over the course of the next months, everyone will be transitioned over to the new style, which means that tweeters should begin considering how they'd like to wallpaper that space. Here are 5 suggestions for how to bring the fall season into your page:
