The Longest Poem(?) in the World


Poetry has just become a little easier. A man named Andrei Gheorghe has come up with a sort of generator that compiles all of the tweets on twitter into a poem that's running at over 4,000 lines per day. Somehow, this poem rhymes but it's definitely lacking in the meaning department.

I'm not sure how I feel about this project as an actual representation of poetry, but it's a cool idea and it's given me some ideas for classroom use. If you'd like to see this poem, click here.
