#TechTuesday: Twitter Gets Rid of Custom Backgrounds

Have you noticed that your Twitter page has all of a sudden become very bright? If you haven't then you may want to take a look again, because Twitter has stripped us of our cool wallpapers and replaced them with a very bright (some are even calling it blinding) white wallpaper. And trust, people are not too happy about it.


(They left blank space baby, I can't write my name.)

When I noticed it last night, I didn't really think much of it - but looking back,  I did have a pretty cool background image that I wish I would've saved. :-(

Wondering why Twitter has done this? Well, they haven't made that reason completely clear. But according to Mashable, you are still able to see the custom background you once had when you click on individual tweets.



(UPDATE: It's now 3.5 years.)

Thoughts on this weird update? Hopefully, Twitter will provide us with the ability to express our background creativity soon and very soon. Let me know your thoughts by shouting me a holler in the comments below or sending me a tweet!

Until next #TechTuesday,
