Twitter recently changed the layout of your profile. With it, you can now upload much larger header images than before. Take advantage of this feature with our video game-themed headers, celebrating five decades of digital entertainment.

We’re releasing seven days’ worth of artwork, each with a different theme, that you can use to decorate your new Twitter profile:

  • Monday: The ’70s

Today’s batch of headers features 10 classic titles released from 1970 to 1979. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pictures, and then right-click (or Ctrl-click for Macs) them and hit “save image as” to save to your computer.

Check out our gaming-themed Facebook Timeline covers here.
