Arduitter

Arduitter… Send a tweet with the hashtag #arduitter and wait to see it live (@arduitter).

So, that’s it. Arduitter is ready and it’s live. After a few months it can now be broadcasted so anyone can see, enjoy, comment and maybe build one themselves. First of all let me tell you what Arduitter is and where the idea came from and what it is not.

Arduitter came from the fact that i wanted to build something related to Twitter and what could be better than build a device that could read tweets in near real time. So i did a little research on the Twitter API and found JTwitter wich is a Java wrapper of the API and fitted (does this word exist?) well for what i needed. After that i implemented my Java code that from 5 to 5 seconds runs a search on Twitter and refreshs a pool of status. Then went straight to the electronics part and made Arduino talk to the Java via serial (COM3 in my case) and show tweets on the LCD connect to it. There’s also a Wave Shield connected to Arduino responsible for making Arduitter “tweet”
