This project uses the Twitter API v2 to query tweets. You can fetch these tweets with the adafruit_matrixportal library and a MatrixPortal M4 plugged directly into your 32×32 RGB LED Matrix. The MatrixPortal M4 has a USB C port for power and data, which keeps the number of wires low. This makes for a nice and compact IoT project for your desk so that you never miss a virtual party.
