David Cuartielles from the Arduino crew takes a picture of the Thermal Tweeter. We were so excited we snapped this picture.
A few weeks ago Tayken designed a laser-cut acrylic case for the Thermal Tweeter. We had it cut at Pololu for $25. It took about 24 hours to cut and ship the case. You can check out the Thermal Tweeter, in its spiffy laser-cut case, at the Open Hardware Summit and Maker Faire New York. […]

Tayken designed a stand for the Thermal Tweeter. We’re getting it cut now, stay tuned for pictures of the final build. Thanks Tayken! You can get Web Platform for $40, including worldwide shipping.
At least 15 rolls of thermal paper. Who knows how many tweets. One sad, broken, thermal printer.

Earlier today the Thermal Tweeter printer stopped working. Probably due to rough continuous abuse. A few replacements are on the way. We dressed it up for a proper send off. There’s an eerie still in the lab now that it’s gone. According to USTREAM there were 26,037 total views and 3,694 viewer hours. The statistics […]
It looks like Thermal Tweeter has come to an end. After 15 rolls of paper the printing is light and the paper isn’t feeding properly. We tried adding some extra delays in the software, but even at 4 seconds delay per line the problems still happen. It’s supposed to have a life of 30 miles […]
Thank you for sending tweets and voting the Thermal Tweeter to first place in the Adafruit/Instructables Make It Tweet Challenge! There were so many great entries, congratulations to everyone who entered for making a great project! A special thanks to Sjaak for the original idea, and for allowing his printer to be tortured for a […]
The Thermal Tweeter started its 10th 11th roll of paper. It’s averaging a roll a day. The Czechs took over this morning though, and we’ll probably use 3 or more rolls today. Keep it coming. For more Thermal Tweeter facts see the this post.
A lot of questions are coming through the Thermal Tweeter. Here’s some answers: How many rolls? About 1/day on Thursday, Friday, Saturday. 2.5 on Sunday, and it ran out twice for a few hours. Also, about 2/day of this variety. The printer uses thermal paper in rolls. It doesn’t use ink. Rolls were 5 for […]

After a few late night mods the Thermal Tweeter is super responsive. We swapped it over to the authenticated feed instead of the public search. Send us a tweet @dangerousproto and you should see it on the live stream within 60 seconds. Here’s some tasty development morsels: There’s a 36 second USTREAM delay between the […]
