A Poem About Tweeting: Twitter Is The New Poetry
Twitter Is The New Poetry
I had read in my recent tweets that "twitter is the new poetry," and this quote inspired me to write this poem.
I don't know where the quote is from and if anyone knows, I would be glad to credit that person. But it does make sense.
My Ode To Twitter
Twitter, in case you don't know, is a social medium where people can send short messages of no more than 140 characters. These messages appear on what is called a "feed" to everyone who is on their list.
It's only been around since 2006. Twitter "success" depends on your ability to condense thoughts into small packages: the opposite of rambling, as it were.
I just started tweeting this year and I must admit I love it. The quickness of it and the randomness of it. It's a mini-universe of ideas and quips. The online experience of a very clever and very crowded party.
So this is my ode to Twitter. A little poem with short lines.
Tweet it if you want to. I know I will! And follow me, @prairienomad, if you care to. I'll be there. On Twitter.
Twitter is the New Poetry
The new poetry
Like a haiku
We tweet out
Of our days.
And blurt out
Of our times.
Stream of nothing
Pieces of random
Is the new poetry
We the new
140 characters of satisfaction.
Tweets like treats
Kaleidoscope of words
Twitter you are
Twitter you are our times.
