Take a sideways look at your Twitter persona with Poetweet

Yes, John Craddock (@Johnbaldy) pointed me towards Poetweet, a lovely little site which takes your tweets and attempt to turn them into proper sonnets etc.

Here's two poems worth of what it does to mine. I like them - they would only need a few tweaks to be confusingly pleasing.

Douglas Adams once wrote about a spreadsheet program which converted financial figures into musical notation and played your accounts as tunes. And Poetweet is something of the same - it provides an alternative representation of what we actually tweet about - our preoccupations, our stylistic quirks, our calls to action.

And, since we can't think in straight lines all the time, isn't that interesting?


With a gothic counterpoint.
To stop fracking in Lancashire
Camp indie rpg at some point...
Could you be a in Hertfordshire?

Obvs - there would be spillages.
Death metal band names I’ve heard.
Mace ('bout that mace) - no edges.
Michel Foucault Pokemon card

The toxoplasma of online rage.
Rather enjoying LA Woman...
A lot easier to update your page

With - DM me for dial in details.
And Ludicra's The Tenant. :)

'All power to the parish councils!'


Presents her Sonic Youth set list
Catharsis in tight leather trousers

Now that’s power in numbers

We're all acting, I guess. :)
Safe and speedyish travels!
Welcome on work in progress.
