Forget about robots taking our jobs. If you're a social media manager, you could be replaced by a CHICKEN in the near future!
Ok, so that's exaggerating just a little bit, but one chicken restaurant in Australia, called Chicken Treat, has an actual, real, live chicken typing out tweets for the brand in what could be a genius publicity stunt. After all, Twitter is for the birds, right?
Fondly known as Betty, the chicken is looking to become the first chicken in history to send out a tweet. All she has to do is tweet a five letter word in english and she's all set ... but that might take a while.
You see, Betty's coup has a keyboard in which she randomly hunts and pecks for keys on the keyboard. She even steps on some of the letters. Naturally, her tweets are a little bit cryptic. What do you make of this chicken scratch?

Before tweets are sent however, a staff member adds the hashtag #chickentweet.
Keep at it Betty! It's just a matter of time until one of your tweets puts you in the Guinness Book of World Records! See how Betty is "training" in the fun video below:
