More than 300 sharks now on twitter

14 Jan

You read that right.

338 sharks are now tweeting their movements across the social network; but rather than learning their views on X Factor or seeing their latest Starbucks coffee, they’ll kindly be letting you know when they’re close to the coastline.

By tagging each shark with a GPS traker, the Surf Life Saving Western Australia team are able to warn people of potential attacks in a heartbeat. Although, as you may have guessed, it’s the humans writing the tweets – all on the SLSWA feed.

So next time you’re taking a dip Down Under, check your twitter and make sure you’re not a sharks next instagrammed meal.
