Twitter to Flicker (not the other way around)

How can I add twitter mentions to my flickr feed? Twitter to Flickr (NOT VICE VERSA)

I've got a digital picture frame from Kodak that links to my Flickr account and puts up photos from the set I designate. I want to turn all tweets that mention me to a JPEG and put it in my twitter feed. Any ideas?

Just to be clear, you want to take the text of a tweet as an image sent to your flickr?

you most likely will want to use imagemagick to do this with the twitter API, and then email your flickr email address with the resulting image, but i wouldn't know how to do it.

Doable but no such thing exists out of the box.
You need to write a script that searches @zackTM on twitter, writes that to an image using something like imagemagick and then emails it to your secret flickr email address.

As an additional piece of the puzzle, there's a service called twictur.es that will generate an image of a tweet from a tweet status ID number, like this: http://twictur.es/i/9466372562.gif.

I'm totally adding this to my Twitter library.
