One thing I love about Twitter is it's simplicity. The concept is simple, the usage is simple and even the design is simple. As far as your theme is concerned you are restricted to changing a few colours and adding a background, keeping things nice and clean and ensuring the app doesn't become a mess like MySpace did :)
These restrictions limit our creativity boundaries so if you want to make an impression with your Twitter profile it all comes down to the background.
I've compiled a list of Twitter profiles who have impressive creative backgrounds, which I feel stand out above the rest. Feel free to share any you've come across and you can also follow me on Twitter.
Some useful links for more Twitter inspiration. Check out Another 15 Beautiful Twitter Themes by Gopal. I came across it while writing this post, there's a few duplicates but still worth a look.
