So, you got something that flashed to notify you of Tweets. Great! The LED is just a start. Just about anything can be hooked up to the Raspberry Pi to notify you of Twitter activity. Let your imagination run wild...

Car horn!

A car horn to alert you of incoming Tweets? Why not?!

The Raspberry Pi may not be as good at connecting to low-level peripherals as the Arduino, but it does offer a number of options on its 26-pin header. If you are looking to hook up additional hardware to the Pi, take a look at the RPi's Low-Level Peripherals page. Remember: the Pi uses 3.3V logic!
