Morse Code Twitter Device Brings The Retro Into Tweeting

In an age when basic devices are more complicated than anything you could get your hands on in the ’80s, people are constantly looking for simpler ways to get their business done. Just about a week ago, we reported that there was a new application for jailbroken iPhones to tweet by just using your voice with Siri. That app has now been released, and people are already working on new renditions of this highly anticipated hack. However, even though it is the ultimate way to tweet, there is still that element of getting your iPhone jailbroken in order to use it. A lot of people don’t want to go through all that trouble and lose their warranty in the process, so they wait until something comes along for all of us non-jailbroken people.

There are of course other ways that you can shackle the simple ways to tweet without having to cancel the warranty for your smartphone. That way is made available by Tworsekey, and it is a really nutty one. The approach is quite simple, but the implementation is ultimately geeky. If you can master Morse code, tweeting will be a dream come true. Tworsekey has actually managed to create a Morse Code Twitter Device that will tweet your sentences using Morse code. DUH!

The whole build is actually tutorialized over at their website, and it is a good one. Don’t expect it to be super easy though. We are not talking about origami here. We’re talking about some rather intricate technical stuff coupled with the Twitter API. Once the device is built, I am sure you will have a really good time tweeting. Now they can send you back in time to sit at the front lines of the future, just tweeting away before anyone else even knows what Twitter is or what it will become. This is definitely a great example of mashing the past with the future. I wish I could just try it out to see how it really works. I know nothing about Morse code, but I could always pick away at the thing like a Twitter bird to see what the results are, right?
