PB make API calls

Is it possible for the PB to make API calls to the internet at large? For example, maybe drive LEDs based on your twitter feed or something?

PB itself wont, but something else can act as a bridge, e.g. Firestorm.
I was thinking I could have PB connect it’s websocket to a remote service (same protocol), this would let it talk to a cloud service, but without needing exposed ports, etc. It would still need some bridge service, but wouldn’t have to be local.
