An Australian fast food chicken company has a fowl running its Twitter account.
Betty the chicken has taken control of the Chicken Treat’s Twitter account for the last week.
Betty forms the tweets, mostly nonsensical words and characters, as she pecks at or walks over the keyboard.
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.
On Thursday, she typed “bum” --which was close but that didn't award her the title.
"Bum"? Keep things clean, Betty. pic.twitter.com/qwLAwmQwKr

No word yet if Betty is going to wind up in the fryer, but she and the stunt has helped grow the company’s Twitter account to almost 8,000 followers.
If you're thinking what animal rights activists are thinking about all this, the company told CNN that the stunt has "been approved by (the Australian Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) & abides by all standards regarding animal welfare."
