A wise man once said, ‘It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me’. We forget who it was, but now there’s a way for Twitter fans to take this advice just a bit literally.
The Twitter Poster is a unique personalised print of your Twitter profile picture, made entirely from your own tweets. Packed with all of your musings, recommendations, rants and more, it’s the most insightful, immediate and revealing self-portrait you could ever own.
So how does it work? All we need to know is your Twitter name 50cm x 50cm poster. With a font size of 18pt they’re readable up to around 2m, but become a jumbled mess from any further away. Until we add a splash of colour, of course.
Set against your choice of background colour, your full page of tweets is then shaded to match your Twitter profile picture. So take a few steps back and instead of seeing line after line of (fascinating) ramblings you’ll see your own smiling face.
Or someone else’s smiling face, if you'd prefer – because you can create a poster for absolutely any Twitter user. It’s a bright, bold and slightly geeky gift for friends, work colleagues and Twitter-savvy family members; or a great way to enjoy the wit and wisdom of your favourite Twitter celebrities.

I bought one for my daughter for her 18th. She is Twitter mad. I know she will love it. It came the day after I ordered it too. Had to search around for a reasonably priced frame large enough to house it but it looks stunning!!! Nicky Cowell - 25th November 2013
I bought one for my son and it is just fabulous. A really unusual gift which captures a moment in time. It's so good that I am about to order another one, and probably a few more for xmas pressies. Kathy - 6th September 2013
Amazing! My niece is going to love this! Ordered Thursday night and arrived Saturday morning, amazing!! Lu Bassett - 26th November 2011
Me again! I got my poster today. It is the best thing I've ever received. I love it so much, I might frame it! xx. Jenny - 23rd November 2011
How many tweets show up? And what if there's black in your Picture? x. Jenny - 14th November 2011
Firebox says: Hi Jenny, there's approximately 230 tweets per poster. Any black areas in your profile picture, the text will just show up as black on a black background and may not be visible.
Do they take the tweets from your most recent or your first posts or just a random selection? Becky - 3rd November 2011
Firebox says: It uses your most recent tweets Becky.
