Send Remote Commands via Twitter to Your PC with TweetMyPC

We’ve seen social media apps for Windows PCs that update services like Twitter and Facebook with either what you’re watching in Media Center or the health status of the PC. Now, it looks like we’re able to tell the PC what to do via Twitter using TweetMyPC. According to the developers behind TweetMyPC, users can update their Twitter status and command the PC to shutdown, restart, or log off remotely. In the future (if I understood correctly), TweetMyPC will be able to @reply screenshots (twitpic?), memory usage, and IP address data. All pretty wild stuff… essentially turning Twitter into a PC terminal of sorts. [via]
