This recent headline on Springwise made me smile: “In Australia, sharks now tweet when they approach the beach.” Best headline ever? Possibly.
Even better, the concept is actually really cool. An organization is attaching tracking devices to sharks off the coast of Western Australia (I’m guessing they get their summer interns to catch and tag the sharks). When a shark swims close to shore, the tracking device triggers a tweet to warn people on shore and in the water (maybe? Who tweets while swimming? I bet Lady Gaga does).
Unfortunately, the actual tweets are completely unimaginative. Like, “Fisheries advise: tagged Bronze whaler shark detected at Meelup receiver at 12:41:00 AM on 26-Jan-2014”.
Please help me think of some better tweets. These are sharks we’re talking about! Look at this guy with his big toothy grin. Imagine getting a tweet from him that said:
If you were a shark, what would you tweet?
