Submission + - A Twitter Client for the Commodore 64 ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: Johan Van den Brande have developed a Twitter client for the Commodore 64, allowing 140 character messages to be posted directly from this TV-connected 1982 home computer. This youtube video shows how the Twitter client is — slowly! — loaded from a 5.25" floppy disk, how the latest Twitter messages are downloaded and shown on the TV screen, and how this tweet is posted. All that is needed is a C64, a TV, and a C64 Ethernet card. The Twitter client is implemented with the Contiki operating system, which otherwise is used for connecting tiny embedded systems to the Internet.
