Telegraph Key Lets You Tweet in Morse Code

If you've grown sick and tired of typing out your life story in your Twitter updates throughout the day, perhaps you need a new awesome way to update your followers. There are plenty of neat gadgets and applications out there that allow you to automatically post or schedule tweets, but the Tworse Key has to be one of our favorite Twitter-related gadgets.

The open design project basically decodes the input from a traditional Morse Key and posts it directly onto Twitter via a standard ethernet LAN cable. Designed by Martin Kaltenbrunner, the Tworse Key is powered by an Arduino processor and works alone without needing to be plugged into a computer or notebook.

All you have to do is plug it into a router or modem and hammer away. Although the Tworse Key may not be the quickest and most efficient method for delivering a tweet, what it lacks in speed it makes up for in awesome. If you'd like to create your very own telegraph-tweeter, head on over to Kaltenbrunner's page here for the full source code and hardware schematics.
