After playing with Unicode barcodes, I noticed that the Unicode Braille Patterns (U+2800) had all possible combinations of the 8 dots. It was a fairly simple program to turn a bitmap image into a dot-matrix version, which renders nicely on Twitter (posting as https://twitter.com/unicodedots @unicodedots).
