Twitter users looking to attract more followers now have a new tool to capture themselves in their best light.

The social network has teamed with Vizify to offer a way to automatically generate short videos highlighting user’s tweets, photos and Vines.

Portland, Ore.-based Vizify aims to help users unify their online presence by pulling together data from social networks and other sources into a single, visually appealing presentation. The start-up’s second partnership with Twitter should help the 2-year-old company gain some fresh exposure.

The Vizify video for Twitter can also show when a user is most active during the day and the keywords that are mentioned most often in tweets. The editable video, which is technically an HTML5 animation, can be posted to Twitter and that tweet can be embedded on other websites. Users may automatically link to the video from their bios.

Twitter is calling the tool #FollowMe, and it's ready for a test drive at Vizify.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant’s has posted his own #FollowMe.

Earlier Thursday, users began gaining access to another Twitter tool that shows information about a user's followers and most popular tweets.
