Using InstaBG To Power Your Blogs Visuals On Twitter

InstaBGAs a visual person I like to create content on my websites that not only allows for a good read but also provides my readers with visual stimulation. However once my readers begin to engage with my content offsite I have found in the past that my content didn’t live up to expectations.

The premise begin InstaBG is simple, users sign into their Twitter account, provide the program with access to that account and then choose which InstaBG photos to include via their backgrounds based on various criteria.

After logging in users will see the following screen:

The programs also offers a variety of categories such as “Pets” and “Baby” among others (still fairly selective). In my case I used “Tags” and chose my area of specialty “Technology.” Read More
