Twitter is removing preset backgrounds and customised wallpapers from its users’ Home and Notifications tab on the website. Now, only a few pages remain with backgrounds, such as single tweets and collection pages. But, there is no guarantee that those backgrounds will remain.
“We’re removing background images from the home and notifications timelines on web for all users,” said Twitter in a statement to The Telegraph.
In the past, users could tweak their backgrounds, which would show up on other parts of the website.
Twitter has not explained why it decided to remove backgrounds. The company did roll out a similarupdate last year by removing backgrounds on new user profiles.
“Now, background images are only available where logged-in users will see them publicly (Tweet pages, list pages and collections pages)” said the Twitter statement. “You can find help centre content about customising your design and where it’s visible on Twitter here.”
