It Tweets!

I took a few minutes this evening to geek out a wee bit.┬áMy Master Control Project has been sitting there working perfectly, staring me in the face, reminding me that I haven’t messed with it in a few weeks.

It didn’t take long to add a whole new layer of functionality to it, as this one is all software: I got it a Twitter account and programmed it to tweet status reports!

You can see the results first-hand by visiting the MCP’s twitter page.

At the moment it tweets a radiation reading at the bottom of each hour, and a temp / humidity message at the top of the hour. I’ll be adding some more tweet-content as things progress.

    This. Is awesome.

    But I’m not following it.

      What sort of freaks me out is last time I checked, it had 13 followers.

      I mean…I’m following it. But I have an excuse – I built it.

      Should it worry me that it might get more followers than me? Cos it does. (worry me, I mean. It doesn’t have more followers. Yet.) I suspect that I may, in fact, be more boring than an automated tweeting device.
