Colecovision ADAM sending a tweet

Recommended Posts

I recently sent a tweet using my Colecovision video game system and its Expansion Module #3 (ADAM Computer) using a 300 baud modem over a landline.

 

The Level 29 BBS (retrobattlestations.com) can be reached via dialup, telnet or the internet.  It also has a gateway to Twitter.com to send tweets.

looking for intelligent life on twitter that could even understand how cool this is as unlikely though.

 

I had a lot of fun with 300 baud modems in the 80's.

Indeed, my thoughts exactly. Make me think of that scene in BIG where Tom Hanks’ character keeps repeating “I don’t get it” when new toys are being introduced in the meeting.
