Can we not have an unsecure way of reading tweets so embedded device can do it?


#1

Most embedded devices do not have enough power to handle SSL.
Given that the IoT is becoming ever more popular, couldn’t we have a way of reading tweets without the need for authentication?
I understand why posting tweets is out of the question, but people are having to resort to setting up PHP servers to re-broadcast tweets so their devices can read them.
Given that Computing GCSE in the UK is about to take off in a big way, it would be lovely to be able to make devices that respond to tweets.
Any thoughts or advice gratefully received.
