The premise is painfully obvious once you visit the site:
Yes, every single time someone tweets using the #DrinkUp hashtag on Twitter the site makes a can opening sound, suggesting that you should take a drink. While pounding a beer every time the noise cranks isn’t a smart idea, taking a sip would make for a fun game.
You can leave the site running in the background and hear the cans crack open signifying that it’s time to drink up. And while yes, you should absolutely be careful while drinking alcoholic beverages, this is an absolutely brilliant way to
