This project no longer works on account of Twitter abandoning sensible API access. 🤷‍♀️

P8T is a simple Twitter client build in PICO-8. By default, it browses recent #pico8 tweets, but you can edit the query at the top and press up to search for other stuff too.

This project is meant to show how PICO-8's GPIO can be used with the webplayer to do basic netcode. If you're interested in a quick overview of how it works, check out my explanation here.

Note: Relies on a PHP script on an external server.
