Twittjr is a system that allows an IBM PCjr to search the public timeline on Twitter. In case you weren’t aware, Twitter is a social micro-blogging service introduced in 2006 and has over five million active users. The IBM PCjr is a personal computer introduced in 1984 and has a 4.77MHz processor, 128KB of RAM, and uses 360KB floppy disks for storage.
