Add Overlays To Your Twitter Avatars
By on August 21st, 2009

You must have come across Twitter profile pics recently where people have added little overlays to show their support for a cause or their favorite brand. One way to do that is to edit your profile image in an image editing software. However, that can be time consuming.

An easier way is to accomplish that is by using Avartize. Avartize is a Twitter application that lets you add an overlay to your Twitter pic by simply choosing an overlay and then signing in to your Twitter account. You can choose from the hundreds of overlays already created, or create one of your own.

Using Avartize is also an effective solution if you want a group of people to display a certain overlay at a certain day for a cause. Avartize would make it easy because you will only have to create the overlay only once.

    A similar site is Twibbon which functions in much the same way.

    A sense of community can also be derived by seeing the “causes” a particular user has used to append to his / her Twitter Display Pic (DP).

    I also like the sections that show causes that are currently “Trending” – so it becomes fairly easy to jump on to the metaphorical bandwagon…

    Does the overlay allow for a link to be inserted as well? Or is it mainly just for looks?
