This morning, I tried to get my Tile Me! avatar working on Twitter. Luckily, Darren and Ertay got me started all over to make my animated avatar working.
To be clear, Twitter apps may not display the animated image correctly. Some will show a placeholder, some will show a static image. If you don’t want this, this is not for you.
You’re still reading? Very nice!
The animated avatar is only in the paid version of Tile Me!. This is an awesome way to show that you are a WinPhan, and should be worth the buck.
Download it right now here: Tile Me in the Windows Phone Store
Create your gif Image by switching over to the “gif” named page and upload it to your SkyDrive.
From there, download it and open ezgif.com.
Choose a size that will resize your image below 700 KB. 150 x 150 should be good for that. Click on “Resize it!”
Then the most important step. Go to https://twitter.com/welcome/profile for uploading the animated gif.
It will only work through this site!!! Do not upload it via the settings pages of Twitter, because there it will remain static!
Here is a little video of the finished result:
