In Central Kenya, four GPS-tagged bull elephants are “tweeting” through the hashtag #ElephantsLive. GPS trackers on each elephant allow scouts to follow their location via mobile phone app. What do you think of these two very different uses – raising awareness for animal conservation vs. human safety – for GPS-tagging and ‘tweeting’ wildlife? How many ‘animals’ do you follow on Twitter?
