本物の鳥がツイッターに挑戦!「Birds on Twitter」が話題 「wwwwwww」も!?

ツイッターの普及により、今ではすっかりおなじみになった「ツイート(Tweet)」という単語が、元々「鳥のさえずり」を表しているのはご存知だろうか? 今では1日に数億の"さえずり"が世の中にあふれているが、「ツイートを本物の鳥にやらせたらどうなるか?」というプロジェクトが動画を公開している。


この「Birds on Twitter」というプロジェクトは、バルト三国の1つ、ラトビアのクリエイターが雑誌のプロモーション企画で行ったもので、その方法は、鳥の餌をパソコンのキーボードにくっつけ、野外に置いておくというもの。その様子はYouTube上にもアップされており、動画では、鳥たちがごくごく普通にエサをついばむ様子を観察することができる。

気になるツイート内容は、「Hungry Birds」というツイッターアカウントで公開されており、

「4444444545445444``11111111111111111111111111111`1```11`1`1`11111」
98908989809808980090909089088980980980980908890809809890888089898989089
089080980989980098009989889898808888888808888888888800888」
「1211111111111133313313111111111111111131331311113113111111313133111313
113131131313131313131313133111111111111111111111111131212113」

といった具合。当然というべきか、同じキーを連打したものが圧倒的に多いが、中には、

「azqlazl/azqla/zl/lqlzazlazazlazlazql/azl/ql/l/ql/lll/azl/azazqazql//laz/lazl/a/zazllz/zazllazz/l/zzzw/l/」

といった"複雑"なツイートも含まれている。

このプロジェクトは2011年に行われたものだが、今週に入ってネットで一気に拡散し、ネット住民からは、

「ニコ厨とかわんねーな」
「餌の好みがわかれば優先順で文章に・・・ならねえな」
「よく飼ってた猫にキーボードの上に乗られてやられたわ」

といった感想が寄せられている。確かに鳥のツイートは「所詮、鳥」という内容だったが、鳥並みのツイートが多数見受けられるのも事実。ネット住民からは、「人間より面白いな」といった感想も寄せられている。

Monks looked up at the magnificent night sky filled with thousands of lanterns in awe. Yi Peng lantern festival is meant as a time for tham bun to make merit. This was the moment I've been waiting for and it lasted very quickly due to strong wind. A very heavy downpour occurred right after we left the place. The lanterns were made of organic materials.

Ghoramara island is located on a delta region in West Bengal. Due to the dramatic increase in sea level, resulting from the effects global warming since the 1960s, the shores of this island are being perpetually washed away. Since the 1980s more than 50% of the territory has vanished due to erosion by the sea. Many of the people still living on the island are farmers and fishermen who depend on the islandís resources for their livelihoods. According to a civil servant I met, in 20-25 years the Indian government could abolish the island and has already formulated a plan to evacuate villagers to another island named Sagar. However, this evacuation plan does not ensure any financial support or compensation for those having to relocate their lives. I situated villagers on the shore and took portraits of them in juxtaposition with the beauty of the vanishing island. There will come a day when these people will have no choice but to move out of their homeland.
