Guess What??? Sharks Are Sending 'Tweets' To Warn Swimmers

The miracle of social networking is coming to the rescue when it comes to the dangers and fears of shark attacks. Turns out, sharks are turning to Twitter and sending 'Tweets' to alert swimmers when they are approaching the beach... 
Check out some of the tweets below: 

A group called Surf Life Saving Western Australia has connected transmitters on tagged sharks to an automated Twitter warning system. The resulting tweets warn surfers and beachgoers about the size, breed and location of sharks that come within a kilometer of the shore.... (So far) about 320 sharks have been tagged.
Below are some examples of the tweets that were sent by the sharks:
