How to Change Twitter Cover/Profile Picture Using Twitter Lite Mobile App

Change Twitter Cover Profile Picture

Sometime ago we posted how twitter users can change their profile photo and header photo without using a PC. The method shared back then required that "desktop view" be enabled to bypass Twitter default mobile site and access the web interface of the site before the picture can be change. Though the method still works, today, I will be providing a simpler and faster way in which the cover picture and profile picture of Twitter can be changed on mobile phone.

In third quarter of 2017, Twitter made a major announcement by introducing a friendlier, lighter, web-based version of its social networking app for mobile phones dubbed Twitter Lite, which can be access directly by visiting on mobile browsers without installing any app. With Twitter Lite, users get almost the full functionality and features of what is available on Twitter Web and these includes the ability to change the profile and cover picture, something Twitter has once denied mobile users.

To access Twitter Lite on Android or iOS (iPhone and iPad) phone, you must have a supported browser installed. For now, Twitter Lite only supports these browsers version:

  • Chrome (version 40 and above)
  • Firefox (version 40 and above)
  • Safari (version 7 and above)
  • Android built-in browser (version 4.4 and above)
  • Opera *not Opera Mini*
  • Microsoft Edge

Follow the steps below to learn how.
