Hello, I am pretty new to the arduino, so maybe this is really simple, but I want to make sure.

Im trying to make the arduino turn on a led when there is a specific update on a twitter account.

Right now I made it work when the update is just one character, but I am not able to make it work with more than that.

Is there a way to check the if statement vs the whole string on the serial.read? does the serial.read just reads the first byte?

Thanks in advance!


Seria.read reads in one byte at a time. You will need to load those bytes into a buffer until you reach the end of your string, then process that buffer as a whole string/sentence accordingly.


Thanks a lot I will try that!
