The old dog (Commodore VIC-20) and the new trick (Tweeting) all in perfect harmony

Share

Whoever says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks obviously hasn’t run into a Commodore VIC-20. While not your typical four-legged, flea ridden mutt, the same basic principal applies. With a downright laughable 5KB of RAM and 1MHz processor, one might think the Commodore VIC-20 in today’s world of 1GHz+ smartphones is nothing more than an ugly looking paper weight. Oh silly, naive reader. Truth be told, you can teach an old dog new tricks.

The magic will be thrown down February 20th on the PC Museum’s Twitter account. Getting to that point however will take a bit of software help by way of “TweetVER” (Tweeting from a Vintage ComputER). Be sure that once the calendar flips over to the 20th of February and when the clock strikes 11(am) you’re situated firmly in front of a screen of some sort impatiently waiting from the Commodore VIC-20′s first tweets to the outside world. It’s truly geek history in the making.

Feelin’ nostalgic are ya?
