 [trailhead?] System 45
cryptic twitter account, link found on reddit's r/arg

Got no time to devote to this right now, but if this isn't a trailhead, I'll eat my hat.

https://twitter.com/system_45

Seems like this has been going on for several months now. Didn't find this on the forum, no idea if it's connected to something already existing.

Found it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ARG/comments/673whg/a_lesson_in_lateral_thinking/

I don't really have time to do much either, but going back through the old tweets to the beginning:

I associate as agender. I felt no need to correct Users before.



I haven't looked at either of the links; and from there on there are a number of other tweets in both plain text and base64, some of them with puzzles attached. None of the other messages have replies, despite it seeming to be some sort of conversation

base64.


I tried that myself, but for some reason the decoder I used decided to screw me over and gave me crap. Seems like you chose a better decoder. Smile

random tip: When faced with a long string you suspect is base 64, add a few equal signs at the end; some decoders work better with the '==' padding.

Oh! Makes sense.

I'll have to go to the university in a few minutes, but from what I can hear, I think the youtube video is morse code... played on piano, so it needs to be transcribed manually. I might try when I get back home.
