Secret 6: Set a Photo Booth Image as Your Twitter Profile Picture

Need to update your Twitter profile picture? If you've set up your Twitter account in your settings under Mail, Contacts & Calendars, it's really easy. Open Photo Booth and snap a gorgeous photo of your smiling face. Select the new photo (or any other photo you want) from the thumbnails at the bottom of the window. Click the Share button and choose Change Twitter Profile Picture (see Figure 6). A whistle blows, indicating that your profile picture has been changed.

Figure 6 The Share button is integrated with Photo Booth.

Another option: If you want to send an image to Twitter as a tweet, click the Share button shown in Figure 6 and choose Twitter.

Finally, play with Photo Booth's cool special effects and apply them to your photo, and set the fancy new version as your Twitter picture. Use the Eiffel Tower background, for instance, and you've found a cheap way to convince your followers you're tweeting from Paris.
