Twitternde Haie warnen Strandbesucher

Großartiger Einsatz von Technologie und Twitter an den Küsten Australiens:

Scientists have attached transmitters to more than 320 sharks, including great whites, which monitor their movements up and down the coast. When a tagged shark swims within about a kilometre of a beach, it triggers an alert which is picked up by computer. That computer then instantly turns the shark’s signal into a short message on Surf Life Saving Western Australia’s Twitter feed.
