Cracking the Code

Fact o’ the day. Google’s first ever tweet was:

01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001
01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101
01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010

Which brings me to a little plaything I was asked to make for Binary Day (10/10/10). It turns messages into binary and vice versa. You can even tweet them which leads me to believe that Google used the tool from the future just to make that tweet. Very cunning of them.

For a quick translation their message, have a look at the binary day tool!
