Well, if you …

The reason why I got the Ethernet Shield is because I found that there are lots of interesting things to do with it. One of it is to make the Arduino obtain live twitter feeds from the Internet and display it on an LCD. I got the inspiration from the example Twitter sketch in the Ethernet Library. I just modified …
