Chickens tweet all the time right? Wrong. At least not the kind of tweeting that involves 140 characters and the interweb.
A Perth chicken named Betty is preparing to become the first of her species to send a tweet across the internet.
In a world first, Betty the tweeting chook will be beak to keyboard in a bid to tweet out an actual word.
The Guinness Book of World Records is poised to recognise her as the “First Chicken to Send a Tweet” if she manages to send a five-letter tweet in English within 30 days.
Betty has a keyboard in her pen, but her dexterity has so far left much to be desired, with Twitter contributions such as “A$%Gbj”, “aslffawe” and “fa*hh/”.
