Can Twitter be used to control a bot?

if a bot has the capability of checking a website (aka twitter) then yes,
twitter can be used as a C&C channel
and for that matter any website could be used.

I had what I thought was a mad idea the other day, why not use Twitter
as a C&C channel for a botnet. I kept thinking about it and swung
between attack and defence so asked a few people and decided that it
could be done. So I've written up my thought and created a proof of
concept bot and posted them to see what people think.


Have a read and give me your feedback.
