From chicken scratch to chicken tweets.
The Western Australia-based restaurant chain hopes Betty will attain the Guinness World Record title of the first chicken to tweet an actual five-letter word from the English dictionary, an honor of extreme poultry prestige. Betty is making these attempts from their official Twitter, with the tweets she pecks out marked by the hashtag #chickentweet.
Betty’s coop has been supplied with a computer in hopes that she’ll string together enough characters to make something coherent to us humans. But she’s no workhorse—the keyboard is taken away every night to give her some rest from the stressful world of content creation.
She’s come close to completing the challenge, having typed out “bum.” Yes, a word, but not long enough to get this chicken the crown.
While we eagerly wait for Betty to reach her goal, at least we can watch the training that went into this incredible feat.
Maybe Betty will feel the pressure if she’s made to use the KFC keyboard.
