Watch out Twitter there is a greener version of you ready for global roll out

With social media companies failing environmentalists, messages in bottles might take over.

With green activists unhappy with the lack of carbon footprint monitoring at social media giants there could be a re-emergence of the use of messages in a bottle.

Well if the success of one resident of Canada is anything to go by. In the last 20 years a guy called Harold Hackett has sent out over 4,800 messages in a bottle from Prince Edward Island, along Canada’s Atlantic coastline.

Since 1996 he has received over 3,100 responses from all over the world. He is now in contact with all these people.

The great benefit for the user is they have to drink a whole bottle before they message someone.
