Twitter has teamed up with Vizify to release a tool that turns your profile on the micro-blogging website into a video biography. The video will encompass all that you speak and post about on your Twitter profiles and turn it into a video based ad for your handle.
Called #FollowMe, the tool skims through your best tweets, most popular images and Vines, and come up with a snappy 30-second long video that you can use as a trailer for your Twitter profile. While this video picks up the most popular stuff from your profile, you can add your favourite images and tweets to it too. There’s a small catch, though. You can only look up the last 3,200 most recent tweets and use up to 800 most recent mentions thanks to Twitter’s API restrictions.
Here's a video biography for you
Also editable is the music that plays along with your video. Powered by Friendly Music, you can choose from an array of clips to add to your videos. Choices of music clips range from rock to country and even electronic tracks.
The video clip will also feature the topics you talk about most and people you interact with most. It will also show you a neat little infograph that displays the time of the day you’re most active on Twitter.
Add your favourite tweets, pics and Vines to your video
To start off, you need to head to Vizify’s Twitter Video page and simply authorise the application as you sit back and watch your bio come to life. You can edit the video to your liking and save it on to Vizify’s website. The service will also prompt you to show your bio video off to the world with a tweet as well as send your Top Followers another tweet to thank them. This video will also pop out as a Twitter card, so you need to leave the site to view your Vizify video.
