Submission + - Finally, Twitter comes to Commodore's VIC-20 (

harrymcc writes: The Personal Computer Museum of Brantford, Ontario plans to make a tiny bit of history this Saturday by tweeting from a 1980s Commodore VIC-20 home computer with 5KB of RAM and a cassette drive. It'll use TweetVER, a new platform for accessing Twitter from vintage computers. It may be a stunt, but with its 140-character limit and lack of graphics, Twitter is one of the very few current Web services that's plausible on a thirty-year-old computer at all.
