  1. I have two other projects between now and when this contest ends (the day before my birthday!) so I won’t have time to do this. Here’s an idea and maybe someone will run with it:

    If weight is very low, tweet “I’m out of food! Feed me!”
    If weight is less than previous weight, tweet “I just ate (grams)”
    If weight is greater than previous weight, “Thanks for feeding me!”
