#twoonday – it’s Twitter Cartoon Day 2!

Today is Twitter Cartoon Day 2 – or, for brevity’s sake: Twoonday.

The idea is simple: cheer up the Twittersphere by changing your avatar (picture) to a cartoon character.

Last year was fun, but this year there are more of us on Twitter, and more things we can do.

There’s a Flickr group where you can submit your screengrabs, and @AlexGamela is creating a Google Map of Twooning Twitterers. I’ll also be creating a tagcloud of the words most used with the #twoonday tag (thanks to @psychemedia for help with that).

The image above is designed to fit neatly on Twitter wallpaper. A larger version is available on Flickr.

Tag your tweets #twoonday to join the fun. Follow the tag here.

After all, it’s Friday!

Meanwhile, below is a cartoon of sorts on the build up to the idea. Continue reading

Today is Twitter Cartoon Day – make it fun

Cartoon Twitter Day

Today is Twitter Cartoon Day. I’m going to be Dick Dastardly Dangermouse Esteban from The Cities of Gold Hong Kong Phooey Dick Dastardly. Brighten up the lives of your fellow Twitterers today by changing your avatar (picture) to a cartoon character.

And see how many pictures on your followers list change…
