When accelerometers meet Twitter.

This programs calculates the covariance of data sampled from a Thinkpad’s accelerometers. If the covariance is over a certain threshold it posts the result to Twitter. Or more simply put, shake your laptop and make it tweet!

It is a command line program which requires a Twitter username and password to be supplied e.g.

shakeyshakey -u foo -p bar

Built and tested on Ubuntu (Jaunty Jackalope).
