Twitter tweets turned into poetry? Try Poetweet

The social stream twitter might just be short messages, but these quick words could be a poet’s dream. The latest and perhaps craziest idea of taking tweets and turning them into poetry comes from Brazil using a free service called Poetweet. At first, the idea sounds almost too good to be true, but it is quite real.

Twitter account users plug in their Twitter stream at the website and decide what poetry type format would work best. Then the computer magic begins and out comes some interesting versus that includes what you might have tweeted in the past, but with a whole new meaning.

This idea is the perfect digital game for a party that has a heavy social media crowd. Without doubt, plugging in different social streams will make a few awkward lines of verse and it would be funny to watch someone blush as they need to explain the words were taken out of context.

The idea is quite charming, but it does fall short if you don’t tweet much or perhaps are serious on some of your examples. The random sayings also are a bit to be desired in some ways. It does offer up a whole new way to dissect those pesky celebrities who tweet cryptic messages in hopes that the fans will figure them out.
