If you want to have a truly terrible Twitter profile, make no attempt to change your picture from the egg. Twitter Pic, HO! 2. Tweet. Here we go! 1. Profile Picture.

Brands that have numerous Twitter accounts to handle the different regions they operate in will have another problem on their hands – consolidating all those identities into one profile/account handle for all of their Twitter marketing activity.
