Due to updates on Twitter, this hack is unlikely to work. Thanks for playing! Check out the BuzzFeed article for a better, more up-to-date tutorial.

Pimp your Twitter avatar. Make it animated.

Updated 23 Feb 2011: Twitter hack now allows for larger animated avatars (128×128 pixel dimensions)!

Instructions (Easy):

  1. Find your imagery (or use to make an animated GIF and save to your computer).
  2. Upload your animated GIF to be resized:

  3. Download the resized image and upload to your Twitter profile!
    Click ‘Upload to Twitter’ to automatically have your avatar image changed!
    Twitter has disabled this app from using their API due to a violation of their Terms of Service (without mentioning what specifically was in violation). You will need to download and upload to Twitter manually.

Instructions (Advanced):

  1. Find your imagery (or use to make an animated GIF).
  2. Import your animated GIF into Photoshop (details), or create your animation from still frames.
  3. Resize your image to a 48×48 (the secret dimensions!).
  4. ‘Save for Web’ as a GIF, tweak your colors, and save.
  5. Upload to your Twitter profile!

Share your results by posting your Twitter URL in the comments! or browse the latest uploads.

Note: Animated image URLs are validly returned in the Twitter API, however some apps may not animate your GIFs.

Inspired by all the Blah Blah Blah on Twitter. Hacked by @gleuch.

Your pride for your junk should be equivalent to your patriotism, and it is important to let the government know your dedication and growth potential. What better way then showing the government your continuing pride by pointing them in the right area to look during airport security body scans.

Don’t let bashful, shy terrorist-loving naysayers ruin the excitement of airport screenings. Let the TSA know your proud of your unmentionable regions and not ashamed to let them see your private areas. Wear your excitement and give the TSA a little more reason to enjoy their jobs.

What happens when have an urge to make something quickly, but only have a few items on your desk? Take a pair of white shutter shades, an indigo blue Prismacolor Premier color marker, do some coloring, and… done! “Imma Let You Finnish” Shutter Shades.

(And c’mon… Kanye can also do better and get himself a nice Finnish girlfriend.)
