Twitter has been making some interesting changes to the way users can direct message one another as back in October, the service announced they would allow any of a user’s followers to send a direct message to you, without requiring you to follow them back. Twitter reversed this idea shortly after it was rolled out, but today, they’re finally taking its direct messaging feature a little more serious with a number of improvements.

A couple of years ago the trend of creating your custom Android mascot really caught on, thanks to the Androidify app that Google released. Since then the trend has died down and the app hasn’t received any attention. Out of the blue, Google today released a major update for the app. It has been revamped with a new user interface as well as new outfits that work well with the upcoming holiday season. The app lets users create their custom Android mascots, which can then be used as personal avatars on the internet, which is exactly why it became so popular back then.
Users have a lot of customization options, they can select from different outfits, hair styles, accessories and what not. All of these options can be used to add a personal touch to the mascots, different body proportions are included as well so users can really craft their ideal avatar. It wouldn’t take much effort to make the mascot look as much as it can like you, which is kind of why most people download this app in the first place. The spirit of Christmas is noticeable, holiday themed outfits and accessories like Christmas lights and candles are also available. Androidify is a free app, it is live now in the Google Play Store.
