In a word...No.  Sadly everything like that is SSL these days and the
Newt cannot do SSL.  Well in theory it could, but one would have to
rewrite the NIE (Newton Internet Enabler) and so far no one has taken on
that massive project.  It also may not be fast enough for the on-the-fly
encryption.  I think it might work, but it would be slow.

IF by some chance the twitter API allowed for usage without SSL then it
would be doable.  But I highly doubt that after the security issues that
have surfaced in the past 5 years.
