Application to automatically update a Twitter profile picture with a dynamically created image. The code currently makes use of the Python Imaging Library (PIL), now Pillow to create dynamic images and then push them to twitter daily.

To get the complete app running for yourself I recommend the excellent http://www.pythonanywhere.com service for the daily Cron task and amazing Python support that is letting me run PIL and the Python Twitter Tools API: http://mike.verdone.ca/twitter/

###Archive

The original image archive has been placed here: Simple Palette Binary Numbers

Since then the technique used has been drastically updated, with better colors, and has evolved two or three times. The full archive of these remains live here: http://exponentialdecay.pythonanywhere.com/

###License:

This app and its supporting files are licensed as Beerware: https://github.com/exponential-decay/binary-numbers/blob/master/license.md

Kudos to the excellent Twitter accounr @cinemapalettes whose work I hope I am using honorably for sake of alternative license documentation.
