Programming Contest on Twitter - Contest 140
I'm thinking of starting a programming contest on Twitter, where any program (in any language) is a candidate. The requirements would be:
1) 140 characters or less
2) It must compile
3) It should do something interesting (output some text, make a sound, print a poem, and so on).
What do you think? Is 140 characters ample to come up with enough interesting and diverse entries? Of course, some languages may have an advantage over others as they are less wordy. Therefore, any mainstream programming language should be allowed.
Let me know your opinion, and follow me on Twitter @ericjbruno to see how this develops. Use Twitter tag #contest140
