Annotated Twitter Meishi GeneratorTwitter user @faa has created a "Twitter Meishi Generator", or, "TMG", which you can use to create a Twitter business card with your last tweet or bio, a QR code of your URL, in an assortment of delightful colors.

So, How Does One Actually Create a Meishi from the TMG?

Never fear. Here's how to use the Twitter Meishi Generator:

  1. Visit the Twitter Meishi Generator.
  2. Enter your Twitter user name.
  3. Choose what to put in the meishi's callout - your last tweet, your bio, or none.
  4. Click the radio button next to the color you desire.
  5. Click the "meishi wo tsukuru" button.
  6. Behold your sparkly-new meishi.
  7. Click the "Download Large PNG" button. (Don't worry, it's not so large).
  8. Forward this post to your friends!

Faa used the free M+1P+IPAG font to generate the meishi's font, and is generating the QR codes via the Google Chart API. Thanks, Faa, very cool!
