We decided we could, and we scheduled it, and we did one. And then we did another, and then another. The number of tweeting poets started growing, and we decided we needed a place to house the “twoems, ” or “Twitter poems.” Actually, one of the twoems turned out to be a “twepic, ” or “Twitter epic.” We began to think about the possibilites for twodes (odes), and twonnets (sonnets), and well, you get the picture. You have to be careful around people who work with words.
So welcome to Tweetspeak Poetry. We’ll be posting our existing efforts shortly, along with scheduled poetry jams, notices about poets and books of poetry we like, and perhaps a guest poem or two.
