HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Twitter now lets you share your birthday on your profile and if you choose to do that — you’ll get a cool surprise! When your special day arrives, you’ll see balloons float across the screen (of a desktop or laptop.)

To add your birth date to your Twitter profile, choose the “Edit profile” option on Twitter.com. You can adjust the privacy of your birth date – sharing it with as few or as many people as you want. You can also set different settings for birth year and month/day, letting you keep your age a secret.
