Post on Twitter using Morse code

There are very few ways in which Twitter can be made more available to us. We already have it programmed into our phones, on our computer, and we have our friends tweet for us if we dont have our own tech around. There are some of us though, who want to go back to the way things were. A simpler, yet much more difficult time that had Morse code dots and dashes to get letters out bit by bit instead of keyboards which can churn out who-know-how-many words per minute.

This gentleman purchased a telegraph machine, and with adequate software, made a program to update twitter via telegraph. Now this is much more difficult than using our current wares to update our status, but this is super creative and probably really fun to use! (If you actually know Morse code, that is!) If this sort of thing tickles your fancy, then you can learn how to make your own, thanks to these somewhat basic instructions.

  • Take it from an old Morse code trained Airborne Radio Operator, this is an interesting toy, but not very practical. No faster than texting at the rate shown in the video. Sending a receiving Morse at speed (30 WPM and higher) is a conditioned reflex not easily learned and then only if the operator has the ear for it. One good thing– communicating in Morse is not completely dead–automation has ressurected it, sort of.
