There’s a Chicken Running a Twitter Account This Very Moment [WATCH]
Forget getting a celebrity to run your social media for a day; this next marketing ploy may be more lucrative even than getting a Kardashian to promote your product, and it doesn’t cost a dime.
One Australian restaurant has let a chicken named Betty run their official Twitter account for the past few days, and will continue to let the hen tweet until she can produce a five-letter word in English.
This may be one the most brilliant marketing moves ever.
The restaurant is called Chicken Treat, so “#ChickenTweet” made perfect sense to collect all of Betty’s nonsensical musings on the account.
Apart from a clever marketing ploy that’s going quickly viral, the purpose of Betty tweeting is also to get the chicken into the Guinness World Record for being the first chicken to tweet.
A video recently posted to the Twitter account (probably by someone other than Betty), shows how the chicken was trained to post her thoughts and feelings to Twitter. The training process was grueling; Betty had to learn stamina, strength, and how to keep up with the Kardashians.
The intrepid little chicken is inspired, of course, by a smattering of feed tossed on the keyboard. Hey, we all need some motivation to get our daily work done! Why not snack while you work?
Here’s the video:
In case you’d like to follow along, use the hashtag #ChickenTweet to see what Betty’s up to. The closest she’s gotten so far to a five-letter English word was when she posted the word “bum.” So close there, Betty! Keep going!
“Bum”? Keep things clean, Betty. pic.twitter.com/qwLAwmQwKr
