    I remember there was a question or even a whole thread here asking how to do this, but i don't seem to be able to find it now, so i'm opening a new one.

    You can still upload an animated gif as your profile pic, but not any type, you can also upload gifs renamed to png, but it won't work anymore, it won't be animated, no matter how hard you try.

    So how you can still upload & use an animated twitter profile pic?

    The one and only way you can do this now if the dimension of the gif is exactly 48x48 pixel and it's not bigger than 700 kilobytes in size.

    Fire up your favorite gif editor to make your own animated profile pic or steal already existing ones from twitter, it's your turn! :saevil:

    That's it, tutorial ends! :)

    Why do you need an animated profile pic instead of a static pic? Go figure...
