My Twitter Bio Is Alive

Since you're always checking my twitter profile to see if I have posted some more comedic gold, you've probably noticed how my bio is constantly changing to display my most recent listened to track.

It takes a lot of time to update the bio every hour for you guys - you just have to know what I was last listening to. (more quality humour right there)

The way I have this set up is actually quite simple and takes the form of one small IFTTT Applet. This applet checks the RSS feed for my last.fm profile regularly and changes my Twitter bio with the entry title for the latest track. Quite simple really.



I think the coolest thing here is the fact it allows you to have a dynamic Twitter bio - there are definitely many more interesting use-cases than just showing recent tracks. Let me know if you come up with something original!
