Only Jason would find a way to work "Sharknado" into an EETimes story. ;) While the shark Twitter project is a lark here, I can think of places on Long Island (my home) where a non-joke version of this would come in handy. Jaws was set on long Island for a reason. There aren't many man-eating great white sharks out on the hunt, but there are several smaller and tame varieties found out east. Locals are used to them but they tend to freak out vacationers. I imagine a few east end inns and hotels would love something like this in the waters of their beaches.
