With the help of some innovative technology, the Johannesburg Zoo has been able to transform one of our very own animals into the zoo's official Social Media spokesanimal. We did this by creating a high-tech animal enclosure that enables the zoo's mascot, a resident honey badger named BG, to tweet about what he is doing and thinking throughout the day. Specially designed sensors inside BG's the Badger's enclosure pick up on his location and automatically trigger tweets from his Twitter account, in real-time. Learn about the Joburg Zoo from a badger's point of view. Follow the World's First LIVE Tweeting Badger on Twitter @zootweetslive or #tweetingbadger.
