A hen called Betty has been persuaded into using a keyboard by covering it in feed making her the ‘first chicken to tweet’. Betty has been traned by a chicken shop to run its Twitter account. The four-year-old hen is the chicken behind the hashtag ‘#chickentweet’ which was created by the Australian fast food chain Chicken Treat.

Betty is free to tweet whatever is on her mind according to managers. It is said that Betty will continue until she successfully tweets a five letter English word. Should she achieve this, it will earn her a spot in the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the first chicken to tweet’.
