Internet thing

Internet thingThis is my new Thing.

It is connected to the internet and is checking at regular intervals if there is any Tweets FROM my Twitter account or TO my twitter account. If it finds one, it retrieves it and print a hard copy of it for posterity…

All this is powered by the Arduino Ethernet, and a fairly simple sketch. I had the various bits required in my parts box and used the tutorials section of Ladyada website. The excellent Arduino cookbook from O’Reilly is also a great reference. I used the steps here to adapt for the bits I had and change the code to my needs. At this point it is all nice and functional it only needs a few LED buttons and a nice box.
