Question for the audience

1) Do you use Twitter?
2) Do you find it useful?
3) Could I use it for avant-garde haiku?

Okay, that's 3 questions.

1. Yes
2. Absolutely. The trick is following quality people. I love (LOVE) getting my news from Twitter. (Not just one-liners, links to articles.) All in one place, on my phone. Also I follow bloggers I like, or Twitter personalities who are known to be interesting and/or funny.
3. Yes

Yeah, I've found that twitter is just choc-a-block, jam-packed with quality people.

pffft.

Mr. D said...

A pfft from Swiftee is pretty close to probative.

Sure it is, if that's what you were waiting for.

That's why I said the word "trick."

Quality in 140 words or less? Works with Haiku, not so much with serious thoughts.

No more of Twitter,
The unfocused abound there,
Where does the time go?

The genius of Twitter is the surprising amount of information that can be conveyed in 140 characters. Doesn't mean people don't often tweet banalities, though.

There are actually a lot people who do use Twitter for haiku. ebertchicago loves retweeting those ones.
