Tuesday Push was Sxoop

conor 11th of February 2009 by conor

Walter and Ursula who run Sxoop Technologies have been in the image manipulation software biz for several years now. Their core offering, Pixenate, an online photo editor, is integrated on many sites worldwide. More recently they have built a bunch of fun and useful tools using Pixenate. The most recent, Twitter Mosaic, is actually making money on Twitter before Twitter themselves have figured out a business model!

Mosaic is just one of those beautifully simple forehead-slapping ideas. You tell it your Twitter username and it generates mugs, t-shirts, bags etc  with a mosaic of your followers on them for purchase on Zazzle. A damn sight more interesting than the “Maximising customer delight through six sigma” mug that your employer gave you as your Christmas bonus.

Get your twitter mosaic here.


There was a great push from the community this week and here are the posts we have found. If you have done a  push, make sure to follow @tuesdaypush on Twitter and let them know.

If you are feeling rosemantic, don’t forget you can also heartify your Twitter avatar on Pixenate at the minute too!

Pixenate and Twitter in a tree, k..i..s..s

Walter Higgins has just released the latest version of Pixenate ~ the online photo editor. This version has a new Transparency tool which makes it easy to create cut-outs from your photos and images.

Smaller web publishers can use the Pixenate hosted service which starts at €29 Euro per month.

Despite Walter’s constant grumping about Twitter :-) , they also had more than 800 twits use Pixenate to make festive twitter avatars in the run up to Christmas.

It looks like 2009 is going to be another top year for the Pixenate crew.
