Conclusion

This project is designed to introduce you to the concept of a twitterbot and API keys, and the applications they have within IoT. You will have constructed a twitter account and obtained API keys then used the Raspberry Pi to write a python script to tweet randomly out of a list without having to be on the twitter app. Twitterbots are extremely powerful tools, and this tutorial is just scratching the surface of what you can achieve with it. Keep in mind that the Raspberry is limited in processing power and will not be able to handle large volumes of traffic accurately.
