Twitter is so easy to use that even a Commodore VIC-20 can tweet. And on Saturday, the Personal Computer Museum in Brantford, Ontario, intends to prove just that.
The museum will run a program on cassette tape on a VIC-20 with only 5K of RAM that will allow the computer to tweet, it announced:
The Personal Computer Museum is proud to make history Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010, with Twitter and the Commodore VIC-20. You, too, can be part of history as we put one of the lowest-powered personal computers onto the Internet, and, more specifically, with Twitter. The software is on cassette tape and runs on an unexpanded VIC-20 with only 5K of RAM. To put this in perspective, an average PC today runs at 3,000 MHz and contains 2,097,152 KB. That means the average computer today has 419,430 times the memory power and 3,000 times the speed of the VIC-20!
