I’ve been playing catch-up with my poem’s for the Writer’s Digest Poem-A-Day competition. Yesterday’s prompt was to write a poem based on a hobby. Since I seem to spend so much time on twitter lately, I thought I could classify that as one of my hobbies.  And writing a poem about twitter, I of course had to try and write each line within 140 character limit. So here it goes:




i sit quietly in front of my glowing computer screen, reading, replying & typing messages to friends & strangers only known by screen names.


i condense my thinking, remove unwanted words like pronouns. does my meaning get lost? do you understand what i am saying in 140 characters?


if i follow you, will you then follow me? tweet me a reply and i will retweet it to others. others who follow me and may then follow you too

One response to this post.

  1. Well done! And sums up tweeting quite nicely.
