Apple IIe + Twitter = Most Awesome

As someone that grew up using and learning on an Apple IIe, nothing heartens me more than seeing people still doing cool stuff with it. Everytime I see someone PEEKing and POKEing, it makes me want to fire up my old computer and see how much I remember about using it.

One such example is this super-awesome project that takes a user’s twitter avatar and their most recent tweet and displays it in LORES or HIRES on an Apple IIe. And it’s done by flashing lights on the joystick input! Craziness.

Just watch the video:
