As long as your SMTP doesn't require encryption this is simple: Use
MailSender that comes with every Pharo image. Seaside provides some
objects on top of that, so that you don't have to assemble the message
by hand.

Twitter requires OAuth, which requires an SSL capable HTTP client.

> Maybe producing a RSS could do the thing?

Again, simple with Seaside, but any XML library can do it.
