Twitter and tweeting were once associated exclusively with birds until the arrival of Twitter, the micro-blogging network. Naturally, birds should have an equal right to be able to tweet their hearts out. To that end, Voldemars Dudums has devised a special keyboard which enables the birds to tweet online.
Dudums is a well-known Latvian concept artist. To accomplish the feat of letting the birds tweet, he devised a special bird feeder which has been built atop a keyboard. In building the bird feeder, he placed huge chunks of bacon fat on each of the keys. Every time a bird came along to feed himself, he essentially sat atop the keyboard, thus unwittingly pressing different keys.
The keys that they pressed were fed to an API which converted the ‘tapping’ session of each bird into a tweet. These tweets were then automatically tweeted online at the handle @hungry_birds. On average, the birds generated 100 tweets each day.
Watch the video below to see the birds at action, tweeting away their feeding sessions:
