What I'm trying to build needs to have arduino sending messages to twitter or facebook at its' heart. There's other things involved but after doing some more research it looks like there are ways to tweet without a cell phone which makes it easier.
I've seen the GPRS shields for sale at $50 minimum.
I'm trying to find info on the bare components also because I'd rather build my own shield/board if possible.
So my next questions to the experienced/professionals out there:
What is the cheapest way to have arduino tweet on twitter?
Where is there info on the bare components needed to build it if not buying a pre-made shield?
Thanks in advance.
These forums have helped me build my own Arduino-driven LED coffee table without having a history of knowing electronics at all. Much gratitude towards those keeping information alive and available.
