PixelJoint Twitter


Pixeljoint has had a twitter account for ages, but we've never really used much...until now!

To let everyone know we're in action, for the next 24h hours we'll be retweeting all pixel art shared on twitter with the hastag #pixeljoint ! Really anything you want to be shared, old and new works.

With so many PJ members and pixel artists on the platform, we felt like we could increase our presence there. From now on we'll be sharing most of the front page news posts, and we'll feature some artwork from the winners of challenges and the monthly top.

If you're on twitter, let us know about your handle in the comments below and @PixelJoint will follow you (if we aren't already  )

At last, we'd want to know: What kind of content would you like us to post or share on twitter?

Yes, the top 10. My idea is to automate a message with a link to the post, and maybe attach a collage with the preview image of every entry, for example. You can do that with imagemagick montage (magick montage -background none -geometry 100x100+1+1 -tile 2x *[0] top.png)

For a monthly top using the same auto message (winners for June'18 monthly) would be fine. Now that i think about it, the same could be done with challenges.

Also, i think the profile should include an specific entry for twitter, that would remove a lot of pain.

What do you mean by monthly showcase? The top 10? And how do you suggest we would automate them? Right now I put quite a bit of effort in scaling and cropping for twitter, trying to find the matching twitter handles (if they exist), and writing a bit of a personalized message.

You could automate monthly showcase tweets.

Thanks for doing this, Hap! Glad to see PJ being alive over at Twitter.
