twitter speak

Twitter is one of the most popular means of "social networking" these days. In case you haven't heard, any message you put on twitter has to be 140 characters (including spaces between words) or less. A while ago, someone asked "tweeters" to submit poems that fell within the 140 character limit. Here are a few that I came up with:

life can be joyful
life can be sweet
it's much better shared
so you might as well tweet


life can be cruel
life can be bitter
for some comic relief
i'll see you on twitter


perhaps i don't know you
and we'll never meet
but i still love you
so just watch me tweet


here's some advice
that bears repeating
if you want to be cool
you'd better start tweeting


life's not too bad
but it could be sweeter
i fell down the stairs and
broke my damned tweeter!
