#HBD: Celebrate your birthday on Twitter

Monday, 6 July 2015
Every day, millions of people celebrate the important events in their lives on Twitter — from public events like the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that ignited #LoveWins to more personal ones like a friend’s birthday. We’re excited to make sharing these personal celebrations even easier — starting today, you’ll be able to show your birthday on your Twitter profile.

Kicking off the festivities is the one and only Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real), who happens to be celebrating his birthday today. Take a look at his profile to see what yours will look like on your day.

To add your birth date to your Twitter profile, choose the “Edit profile” option on Twitter.com. Your birth date is a completely optional part of your profile and you have full control over who can see it. The visibility setting for your birth year is separate from the setting for your birth month and day, giving you the flexibility to share as much (or as little) as you want. Check out our Help Center for more information about your birth date on Twitter.
