I was just wondering, i want my arduino to do something every time i tweet something to it. How could i do this? I only want it to do the task only when I tweet it.

How will the Arduino know when you are being a twit? Do you have an ethernet shield for it?

If you had said "I want my Arduino to do something every time I tweet something to my PC that the Arduino is attached to..." then yes, you could. But, then, it isn't the Arduino that is being twitted. It's the PC, which then tells the Arduino to do something.
