One sign of a service’s popularity is the proliferation apps related to that service. Take for example Twitter. The microblogging social service is so hugely popular that many companies have developed their own apps that will allow users to access their own Twitter accounts and read others.
But even if Twitter apps for mobile devices are very convenient to use, the whole user experience is still quite different from using Twitter in its original environment – your browser. One of the best reasons to use Twitter using your browser is the personalization you can apply to your Twitter page. If mobile devices have apps for accessing Twitter. The desktop PC also has online services that allow the user to personalize his Twitter page.
One of the more popular services that allow for Twitter page personalization is InstaBG. This service will let users personalize their Twitter page with photos taken from Instagram. InstaBG will collate different photos based on a category or search term you specify and produce a mosaic background with all of those pictures. This greatly personalizes your Twitter page because you can look for search terms that is related to a recent topic that you’ve been tweeting about. You can also use InstaBG to create a background using the Instagram photos you’ve uploaded personally on your Instagram account. The level of personalization is amazing. You won’t tire using it. What’s more using the InstaBG service is very easy. You just simply need to log on with your Twitter login details at the InstaBG website and you’re good to go.
