Check out this project, this monitors the twitterverse, and sends messages to a Bluetooth device, (the sphero).https://software.intel.com/en-us/updating-orbotix-sphero-in-response-to-tweets-edison
Its not exactly what you asked for but hopefully this helps.
Another example I found is on Instructables, http://www.instructables.com/id/Tweet-with-your-Intel-Edison/
Google is your friend..

I am looking into the second link which Stewart gave. I am trying to build a tweet controlled coffee machine using Edison. If I can I will be sharing.

It's been sometime but I still could not manage to control an output through Edison board. The examples I found on-line, usually doesn't support the Edison.
Do you have any idea how to control Edison's output from twitter time line?

Best advise it to defocus on the whole thing and break it down into pieces.
From your description.....
1. Make a program that led turns a led on.
2. Work out how to signal program to turn led on (look for semaphores, mutex and shared memory) - this is one way of communicating between programs. This is your signaller program.
3. Now you have a program that when run, talks to another program that makes a Led come on.
4. Now if you take the twitter verse code mentioned earlier and put it into your signaller program all of a sudden you are finished.
The important thing is to in some respects do the job as agile code where you have programs that can be built up out of stubs and you write and test bits as you go along until almost magically - the job is done
