TweetDonate Twitter Account

23 Sep 2010 by admin, Comments Off

Added an interesting feature to my Twitter account (@tweetdonate) for this service that was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine and fellow programmer John Piasetzki.

It’s a background that changes to show statistics about the service:

The background is updated by cron in fifteen minute increments by writing text over top of a preprepared PNG that has the logo and tag line. The image is then saved and uploaded to Twitter using the API. It’s actually pretty easy to make!
