Auto-Updating Twitter Banners

Written by colinodell.com - Blog / Original link on Jul. 3, 2021

If you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed a fancy new banner image:

This is powered by dynacover - a really nifty tool created by Erika Heidi that automagically generates and uploads dynamic Twitter banner images! I’m running a slightly modified instance with a custom template that updates every 10 minutes via cron. Currently, my banner is showing my recent Twitter followers as well as my GitHub sponsors, though I’m thinking of some other interesting things I can pull into it in the near future.

Try it out

Want to see it in action by having your avatar appear in my banner?

  1. Follow me on Twitter or sponsor me on GitHub
  2. Wait up to 10 minutes
  3. Reload my Twitter profile and see yourself in my banner!

A huge thanks to Erika for releasing this awesome project!
