Twitter on Thursday launched #FollowMe, a new service that allows users to instantly create shareable movies depicting their social footprint — top tweets, photos and followers.
Twitter has licensed music from more than a million songs for use with the new video platform thanks to its partnership with Rumblefish.
The #FollowMe venture has been put into place so users can better express their own individual tweet style.
According to Twitter the platform is powered by Vizify, a startup in Portland that first partnered with the micro-blogging service for the Your year on Twitter project.
Vizify CEO Todd Silverstein says his company pulls in social data to create a type of “about.me on steroids.”
#FollowMe videos are HTML5 friendly which means they will play equally well on desktop PCs, smartphones, tablets, and other HTML5 supported devices.
Users who want to use Twitter’s #FollowMe platform can simply grant Vizify third-party app access to their Twitter account. Once a user finds their customized video they can add any music or pictures they choose.
Unlike the Twitter Vine platform there are no time limits with #FollowMe.
#FollowMe soft-launched on Wednesday with the help of NBA star Stephen Curry. Here’s Curry’s first Vizify-powered video:
