From ARM Tutorials:
Connecting everything to the internet leads to the innovation of smart objects. In this project, we are going to connect our raspberry pi to the internet and control our home appliance using one of the most popular social internet service Twitter. So the raspberry pi will be connected to the couple of sensors and switches at the one end and other end it will be connected to the twitter service. This hardware configuration will allow us to communicate directly with our home appliances and control remotely.
