Having Trouble Uploading a New Twitter Background Lately?

A client of mine has recently experienced an inability to upload a custom Twitter background they had designed, so I decided to do a little digging around the ‘net for similar experiences.

It didn’t take long to locate two threads that claimed to resolve their issue. I thought I would pass this information along to my readers just in case you, or someone you know, is also having the same problem.

Tip of the hat to the originators of these articles for sharing their workarounds. Thank you for sharing what you’ve discovered. Links to their sites are listed at the bottom.

  • Solution 1 talks about removing the metadata behind the image.
  • Solution 2 talks about clicking on “Don’t use a background image” before clicking “save changes” during the upload process.

To find out more details about the workarounds, please visit the resource links below. If you are having this issue, I hope one of these solves it for you.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

      Just keeping your WordPress current is the best defense against hackers. Also, periodically changing your password and keeping it strong will also help.
