I hereby announce that on this day April 17 2009, I, Douglas Clark Palmer invented Twit-ku, a poetry form using no more than 140 characters.

I promise to remember you when I'm famous.

Hallo, Lane!
Could you please give us an example of a poem in "Twit-ku"?
Did it get its name from some lines in Gilbert & Sullivan's "Mikado"?:
On a tree by a river
There sat a Tomtwit singing
'Oh willow, twit willow, twit willow'.

no it's from the latest on line time waster "Twitter".
Glenn claims that these latest short
posts were poems of a kind, so I started posting them on Twitter.
Margie and Ilkka are interested in the 2 violin concerto, so there seems to be a future for my music after all.
Time will tell, so never confide in it.

Hallo, Lane!
Thanks for the explanation of "Twit-ku"!
Congratulations on the Talvi's positive view of your violin concerto. I hope the same for your String Quartet #2 when the manager of the Rosenbusch Quartett finally gets around to considering it in early-May!!! Toi, toi, toi, as the say in similar situations at theaters here in Germany!!!
