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


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.
