Marcus Goodyear has written an article for Christianity Today’s Books & Culture on TweetSpeak Poetry – how it started, what it evolved into, and where it may be headed.
Key events in the creation: Bradley Moore (aka Shrinking Camel) didn’t understand hashtags, and L.L. Barkat and Glynn Young had begun to rediscover poetry via Twitter. Eric Swalberg joined in, and the first Twitter poetry jam was born on Sept. 9. 2009.
