Proving that the 8-bit home computer has enough life in it to handle modern web technologies, Belgian electronics engineer Johan Van den Brande has created Breadbox 64, a Twitter client for the Commodore 64 (and 128) that allows the decades-old PC to publish updates to the social micro-blogging service and also view posts from friends.

Breadbox 64 does require some modifications to the typical Commodore 64 setup, as it uses Contiki, an open-source operating system; and an MMC replay cartridge for adding ethernet capabilities to the computer. You can watch a video of the client in action below:
