Twitter has gone to the birds

Twitter-birds 1Are you tired of following Twitter accounts that are nothing but boring minutiae and non sequitur brain farts? No matter how dull your friends’ dullest tweets are, here are some tomtits who’ve got them beat. Latvian conceptual artist Voldemars Dudums created a bird feeder using an old computer keyboard covered with cubes of bacon fat. When the birds flew down to snack, their random key presses were sent to an api that turned them into tweets on the @hungry_birds Twitter account. The birds would tweet about 100 times each day and could even be seen hard at work in a live feed, “Birds on Twitter”. The project earned Dudums a people’s choice award for Guerrilla Innovation in Advertising.
