Twitter Deploys #FollowMe Highlight Reels

Hot on the heels of Foursquare’s Time Machine feature, which shows every location you’ve checked-in, Twitter has introduced a new feature called #FollowMe. It offers a highlight video reel of your “most engaging photos, Vine videos and Tweets” powered by Vizify. Several superstars have already created highlight reels, including Amber Patrice Riley, Stephen Curry and Kobe Bryant, though anyone can get in on the action in just a few clicks.

First you’ll need to create a Vizify account, or sign in if you already have one, and approve access to Twitter. Vizify will then create a highlight reel that includes tweets, photos and Vine videos that you’ve uploaded to the social network. It also includes information such as when you tweet, your top followers, and the topics that you tweet most about. If you want, you can even add it to your Twitter bio so that everyone who visits your page can get a taste of what kind of content you discuss. You can create a new highlight reel at any time, too.

We like the new feature, though wish we could edit some stuff out. There are a few tweets and pictures from a few years back that were highlighted that I don’t personally feel reflect my presence on Twitter, for example.
