SatoshiTweet Review: Twitter Like Tweeting Platform with Lightning
An interesting little site has come to our attention while browsing the web. SatoshiTweet.com is both a website and a Twitter profile that uses the Lightning Network of the Bitcoin to tweet. You have to pay 10 Satoshis for each letter that you want to tweet.
The site works as some sort of promotion for the Lightning Network, as it shows that it works well and it is an easy way for you to promote any content that you want without having to pay a lot. We are not 100% sure that any person would actually read your tweets as the profile only have 96 followers and 74 tweets so far, but things are bound to become better.
In fact, the profile was created in June 19, about a week or so before this report was made.

How To Use Satoshitweet?
It is very simple to use this program. You just need to go to the site of the company (not the Twitter profile, mind you) and Tweet. After you tweet, you will need to pay an amount of Satoshi via a QR code.
You can tweet a single letter by paying 10 Satoshi to a full tweet for 2800 Satoshi (about 17 cents in USD). The company states that the feature is still experimental so you will not be refunded in case some error happens and your tweet does not go online.
