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.

This top 10 is always so much fun! I hope you never stop doing it… until the end of time. 😉 Well, or as close to that as you can get. Or at least until the cows come home, each with a flying pig overhead.
