Has anyone tried to place a Stack Overflow flair to a Twitter profile page? I'd like very much to have the one with the hot dog stand theme over there, heh heh.

Since all Twitter allows you to do is changing the background image and the colors, you'll have to constantly re-upload your flair image everytime it changes.

You could run a cron job somewhere that regularly checks if your flair has changed, create a new profile background image that includes your flair, and use Twitter's update_profile_background_image API method to update it.

For the love of all that is holy, please don't put your fluorescent unicorn avatar onto the hotdog themed flair onto your twitter!

My eyes! The goggles do nothing!


With the new image based flair you can easily add your flair to your twitter page. Just use the image (replace 72746 with your user number if you aren't the OP) in the design section of your twitter profile ( - under "Change background image" )

Go to to get the image code for the combined flair, if you're into that.
