Ferries That Tweet


Master Inventor Andy Stanford-Clark, who regularly uses Red Funnel’s ferry services to travel to and from the Isle of Wight, decided it would be helpful to know if the ferries were running to time or not.  So in the same vein as The House The Tweets, he used existing data from the ferries’ GPS trackers to tweet messages when ferries left port or arrived at their destination.  Clever.
