"Twecipe” is a recipe on Twitter (a social micro-blogging service). Recipes are given in posts of up to 140 characters. A user of the “Twecipe” service can type in several ingredients and be given a simple recipe in response. “Twecipe” is the name of the service that launched in February 2009; it’s not clear if the term has been used in a generic context for “micro-recipe.”
Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can send and receive updates via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS (receive only), or through applications such as Tweetie, Twitterrific, Twitterfon, TweetDeck and Feedalizr. The service is free to use over the web, but using SMS may incur phone services provider fees.

New on Twitter: Twecipes
Tuesday February 3, 2009
One of the hottest places on the Web these days is Twitter, a social networking and microblogging service that lets people communicate in snippets of 140 characters or less. I enjoy it so much that I thought it might be fun to try doing 140-character recipes. And thus, the “Twecipe” was born.
Contrast - The Blog
So what’s Twecipe all about?
Simply, if you’re on Twitter, you can talk to Twecipe like this: “@twecipe broccoli, carrots, beef” and you’ll get a response like this: “Try Beef and Vegetable Pie http://twecipe.com/_kaw”. If you’re not on Twitter, you can use the site. And that’s it! A quick and handy way to get quick and handy recipes. Now I’m really hungry!

Waste not, want not with Twecipe

When it comes to cooking Web apps for people, the two most important ingredients are simplicity and usefulness. Twecipe, the brainchild of Irish Chef Niall Harbison and developed by the team at Contrast, is as simple an app as you’ll find. If, like me, you cook a lot and the contents of your fridge could be described as “random junk” at the best of times then you’ll also find that Twecipe is incredibly useful.
Here’s how it works. You simply type in some available ingredients and Twecipe will come back to you with a recommended recipe. Or, if you’re on Twitter, simply tweet your list of ingredients directly to @twecipe. For example, tweet “@twecipe eggs, ham, muffins” and you’ll get the full recipe for Eggs Benedict sent right back to you!

Stuck for a recipe? Just use Twitter and find a top chef
Twitter users have started to post entire recipes online in no more than 140 characters - but some instructions are confusing. We challenged leading chefs to boil down their own recipes

There is a growing trend for people, including some leading chefs, to create micro-recipes - a single paragraph that tells users how to make an entire starter, main course or dessert - then transmit them via Twitter.
Another Twitter phenomenon that is on the rise is Twecipe - a service to which you tweet your ingredients and receive a recipe in return.

With the onset of microblogging phenomenon Twitter comes the twecipe, an ultra-condensed recipe on Twitter that tells followers how to make a drink or a dish. Users such as cookbook, tinyrecipes, twixologist, and, of course, twecipe offer up suggestions for your next meal using 140 characters or less.
