Chicken Treat Have An Actual Chicken Running Their Twitter Account
The Debrief: Betty wrote 'bum8' the other day and everyone lost their shit
An Australian chicken shop has got an actual chicken tweeting from its account. So far, it’s been fairly incomprehensible, but Betty the chicken wrote ‘bum8’ the other day, which got everyone really excited.
The shop, Chicken Treat, aims to get Betty tweeting a five-letter English word by October 30, in order to get her into the Guinness Book Of World Records. And if you’re wondering how she tweets, it’s all to do with pecking at the keyboard.
To celebrate what has to be one of the best marketing campaigns in recent history, here are Betty’s best tweets so far. It’s safe to say she’s got a bit to go before hitting that five-letter glory.
This is absolutely vintage Betty – loads of letters, numbers, spaces and symbols
