Twitter Integration

A first of brewing in cold temperatures in a hope to get something hoppy ready for the end of Feb.

A mistake in the code for the reading the DS18B20 probes meant <10 degrees was getting read incorrectly. (Taking the first 3 digits and dividing by 10 was intended to give a decimal place - but instead that meant 8500 for 8.5 degrees was coming as 85 deg. Unfortunate as this is an error state for the probes).

I've also started to integrate with twitter:
 - approaching events such as HLT up to temperature gets tweeted @my main twitter account. If I've lost track of time this serves as a good reminder.
 - key recipe stats steps (#hopbill, #grainbill) and tweeted.

All tweets have #brewerslab hash tag.
