This is a problem that many bands and people in general are encountering.  How to make a Twitter BG fit! With all the many resolutions and different laptop screens, it’s difficult to build a Twitter BG that everyone will see – or is it? After much searching for templates, I finally found a truly useful PSD which makes Twitter design easy as pie:

http://www.fuelyourcreativity.com/free-psd-twitter-background-template/. It literally shows you where your design needs to fit for every possible screen resolution. The lesson learnt in this Free Twitter template is that one needs to design their BG to be able to fit even the smallest resolution sizes to be safe. If you keep your design close to the Twitter modules,  people will be able to see your information.

There is also a very clever link which shows you how your Twitter appears from various resolutions, just to be extra safe: http://twidrops.com/images/tut/res/twitter_resolution-margins_687x119.png
