For some reason – probably the fact that it’s a close-up of a single, leering eye – Shane Richmond’s Twitter avatar really stands out. Of all the people I chat with on Twitter, his seemed the most grotesque, the most horrifying and I let him know this. Shane disagreed and challenged Teh Twitter to find examples of scarier avatars, even recommending a few.
We decided on the spur of the moment to investigate further and we now present our first gallery of Twitter horror-avatars. We created a hashtag – #horroravatar (and another for avatars that didn’t quite make the grade called, predictably, #horroravatarnot).
Please keep sending us links to the scariest Twitter avatars you can find, or use the hashtags.
