One of the appealing aspects for many people about being online is being able to create the sort of persona that you want to portray.
In the case of Twitter there are a whole range of profile images used to create an ‘image’. These range from rather bizarre graphics, to ‘hey look at me I’m some kind of success’ image.
Then there are those who want a good, honest quirky image that is them but at the same time is not really them.
Some time ago we did a caricature for very nice, polite Indian lawyer. Today I have seen how this image is also being used as an identity picture on twitter.

This caricature was created by artist Zalo (in a more complete form)
