Chicken Treat Restaurant Has Live Chicken Running Its Twitter Account: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Australian fast-food chicken franchise called Chicken Treat says it has solicited a hen named Betty to run its Twitter account by placing a computer in her coop. For the last week, the company`s tweets have been mostly nonsensical strings of characters typed by Betty as she pecks at or walks over the keyboard.

It is, not surprisingly, a marketing stunt. The company will continue this exercise until Betty successfully tweets a five-letter word in English, which will apparently earn her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records."

What a brilliant marketing campaign, maybe if I solicited a kitten to run my Twitter account I`d have 40 thousands followers instead of a measly four thousand.

I hope Betty will finally tweet a five-letter word in English, but even if she doesn`t I pray she doesn`t end up as Chicken Treat chicken nuggets.

Betty looks mighty fat and fluffy, dear God I hope she`s not fed leftover Chicken Treat menu items.
