Chicken Treat, a fast food company in Australia, has embarked on a new social media campaign… with the help of Betty the chicken. The campaign is called #chickentweet and it is exactly what it sounds like. Betty started tweeting on October 8 in an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Her goal is to tweet a five-letter word in English.

The chain’s CEO, Mimma Battista, told Perth Now, “Social media is a powerful and instant way for us to have a conversation with our customers. We felt the #chickentweet idea would reflect that in lighthearted and unique way.”
