Hi Product Hunt! Super psyched to see this on here. It was made in < 20 hours (including a small amount of sleep for @sirw0lfgang) and launched this morning. Happy to answer any questions.

@jonarcher and @sirw0lfgang came up with the idea for Tweety Pi yesterday afternoon as a fun way to celebrate Pi day by scheduling a tweet to be sent at exactly Pi time (local timezones): 3.14.15 9:26:53. Then, they built it overnight and launched it. :) They should be able to answer questions once they get commenting privileges.

The interesting part for me is how it's a tweet cannon that's going to fire a bunch of tweets at the same second, rather then scale and staggering. That makes it a bit more challenging when thinking about scaling. There isn't time to react, we have to spin everything up proactivly.

Is this service powered by a Raspberry Pi or a Pi Cluster?

@muloka Haha. Unfortunately no. Just Heroku based antics.
