Have you heard of poetweets? They’re short bursts of verse that use 140 characters–the length of a tweet. Similar to haiku being limited to 17 syllables. Thanks to the author of this Prezi description of poetweets. This relatively new art form, as commented upon at Cafebabel, has already caught on in New York City, where there’s an annual contest.
So is it time for Notre Dame to inspire poetweets? I try my hand at introducing the concept on Twitter @wschmitt and #poetweet. If you like the idea, please retweet me!
