an enactment with animatronics and trending hashtags

Elephant Talk, also affectionately known as ET, was originally a digest-format newsletter distributed by electronic mail, and available on the WWW. It was started in August 1991 and allowed readers and contributors to swap informationand chat about frippery in general. The newsletter was discontinued after 1251 issues, and over 15 years of chit-chat.

Now there is Twitter to distribute news and gossip.

Elephant talk stands for talking without speaking too much.
Making someone understand what you mean without actually having to throw a lot of words at them.

The elephants play human communication based on trending hashtags.
