Twitter used to let you put whatever imagery you wanted up as the background on every Twitter page you surfed on. It was glorious. If you made a photo of your boss Mr. Tokunbo, your background, you’d see his little face on the background of your timeline and notifications page.
In an unannounced move, Twitter no longer lets you see the customized background you added in the design area of your settings on the home or notification screen pages. Womp Womp. We asked Twitter “wuz up wit dat?” and a spokesperson said:
We’re removing background images from the home and notifications timelines on web for all users. Now, background images are only available where logged-in users will see them publicly (Tweet pages, list pages and collections pages). You can find help center content about customizing your design and where it’s visible on Twitter here.
