Twitter Poetry: Top Ten Poetic Tweets

twitter poetry top ten poetic tweets

We spend a lot of time on Twitter. (We’re Tweetspeak Poetry, right?) In fact, we figure we read thousands of tweets every month. One of the things poetry and Twitter have in common (when done well) is an economy of words. Sometimes, it so happens we read a tweet and say to ourselves, “That’s poetry.” It’s Twitter Poetry. Maybe it didn’t even mean to be a poem, but it’s a poetic thing all the same. It’s a way of using words well.

We want to take notice.

Here are ten of the best poetic tweets we’ve seen in the last few weeks:
