Generate Random Backgrounds For Twitter
By user12607856 on Mar 26, 2009
I had a hack attack yesterday. I converted an old C program of mine that automatically generated random patterned backgrounds for an X11 desktop, to now generate similar random patterns, but this time save them in a .bmp file. If you then convert then to .jpg (or .gif or .png) they can be uploaded and used as your new Twitter background.
You can see a sample random circle background pattern on my Twitter page.
It's version 0.1 of the code. A quick simple conversion. It needs to be tidied up and improved. It should also just generate .jpg (or .gif or .png) files. I need to see if there is a standard Python class trhat does something like that.
What would be even nicer was if it could automatically change your Twitter background, but I don't see anything in the Python API for Twitter that allows anything like that. Pity.
