We spend a lot of time on Twitter. (We’re Tweetspeak Poetry, after all.) 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. When we see good Twitter poems, we stop and take notice.
In no particular order, here are ten of the best Twitter poems we’ve seen in lately:

It really doesn’t matter, love,
if you arrive or not
the matter is the way you strove
to get to where you got.
