Real birds’ tweets on twitter

February 21, 2011 § 1 Comment

I suffer from another case of falling in love with an idea online. Birds on Twitter is an amazing project by Latvian weekly magazine “Ir”. Their idea is to, simply, post tweets on Twitter. I mean actual bird tweets.

They have installed a simple keyboard outside a small village on the west coast of Latvia and put large chunks of fat on top of the keys. As the local birds use their pecks to eat, they type messages that are streamed on the site’s twitter account: @hungry_birds.

There is also a live web cam, but it was, unfortunately, down when I was checking it, earlier.

What do the birds say? Here’s a sample: “nnnnnnnnnnnjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjujunnujjjkmumnmmnmmn;;;;;pppppppppppppppppppppppppppplplpp”. It’s not that bad – still, you could always join us on twitter for some slightly more eloquent tweets: @itsasmallweb.
