Twitter notifications for MotionEyeOS video surveillance system on Raspberry Pi

MotionEyeOS is a wonderful project by Calin Crisan that converts your single board computer into a video surveillance system in a matter of minutes. It is supported on a number of devices and is well maintained with good community support.

Now that the latest Raspberry Pi Zero version (W) comes with onboard Wi-Fi, it makes an ideal candidate to deploy MotionEyeOS across your perimeter and run a cheap video surveillance system with lesser clutter of having to attach a Wi-Fi dongle as in the previous versions of Pi Zero.
