Arduino team member Tom Igoe has found an interesting feature (or loophole? You decide) within the pachube/cosm online data graphing service that allows your Internet-enabled Arduino board to send a tweet. Although there are already a few Arduino-twitter solutions, this one is good as you don’t need to muck about with third-party authentication. Thus your Arduino can now tweet with the stars or let you know more relevant data.
For more information and a great tutorial, click here to visit Tom’s website. And for more, we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
