Twitter Manga Avatars

Over the past couple of days a lot of Twitter users have been changing their avatars to "manga" versions of themselves. These images are created using Face Your Manga, a flash-based character creator similar to Mii.

Here's my own avatar:

And here is a collection of some of the people I follow, in alphabetical order. Maybe you should follow them too:

Some of them are uncanny! There were more but the users seem to have switched back. If you made one, share it and your Twitter profile below.

Lameeee. lets all follow the crowd!

Adam Snider

Wow, this really is a big trend, eh?

Oh well, I like mine. I don't care if it makes me part of a trend or not.

Yours is pretty good, Mike. Based on pictures I've seen, it looks about as similar to you as you could do with the options available.

@HZ: Awesome, and good job on the linking ;)

@Sam: I think I saw yours while you had it up, it's pretty good! Quite a few people had the up then took them down shortly after. A few minutes of feeling part of something awesome ;)

@"twitter": No one is forcing you to take part :)

@Adam: Thanks! I just had my hair cut, but couldn't find one shorter than that. Not by much though! Yours is pretty damn good too :D

Nyssa

I might "follow the crowd" myself for a bit ;P

Mike

Your one is great Nyssa, welcome aboard ;)
