When a user first signs up to Twitter, the easiest way to make a good impression is to spend time filling out your profile with as much information as possible:
- Use your real name, or potentially lose credibility.
- Provide links to a resume and any other professional social network profiles.
- Include credentials, job titles (former or current) and industry specialization.
No-one takes the default 'egg' picture seriously; and you may be mistaken for a spammer or fake account. Instead, upload a professionally branded photo -- preferably the same as any other accounts, such as LinkedIn. A standard or specifically-designed professional background will do -- unless you happen to be in the creative industry, and then you may want to use the space to showcase some of your skill.
