Making your Twitter User Image or Background Auto-Update with IFTTT

You can be annoying to the people that follow you on Twitter by changing your profile picture. You can be even more annoying by doing it often. Here’s how you can do just that.

Obviously you could use any number of triggers to create this action, but use the “Date & Time” trigger when you create your IFTTT recipe. Set it to trigger once an hour. Then, select Twitter to be the action portion, and select “Update your Profile Image”. Now use the URL of an image that changes (I used a NOAA map). Now your user image will be updated hourly with whatever that image is. You could use a webcam, create an image that updates with dashboard info, or the profile image of another twitter user.

Have fun.
