Regarding poems and poetry, there are a variety of methods used to showcase either your original poetry or a famous poet like Shakespeare. It’s all in fun!

5 Ways to Display Poems on Twitte

1. Micropoetry. Micropoetry has no traditional rules. It must ‘fit’ into a Tweet of 140 characters, maximum. One can write it all as one paragraph, or hit the “Return” button on your keyboard to start a 2nd or 3rd line going down the left column of the Tweet. Some Tweets have 7 or 8 lines!  Here’s 3-lined micropoetry from my account @TheRebelPatient (named after my book, from @SaySagaInspire, of course!):

Without an image, micropoetry still has a high incidence of getting Re-Tweeted.

2. Comment and Quote. Famous Twitterer @JETAR9 comments on and then quotes Shakespeare. Super popular as well as philosophical in engaged conversation with @911well, they both have over 1 million Followers – so feel free to be bold and expressive, conversational and engaging! No images are needed!

3. Poem plus Image. This may be the most popular display of poetry. With the infinite number of images possible to pair with even the most popular poetry of Shakespeare, it’s always interesting to view how the person pairs the two.

4. Stamp Poem onto an Image. A popular selection, this allows personalization with your own photo or favorite colors, and is a super venue to be bold with artistic talent and branding.

5. Copy a Book Page. This is a different type of Tweet with unique merit, as it ‘breaks up’ the usual monotony of the traditional ‘two’ choices of words or image by combining the two, without character limits! It’s perfect!

So don’t shriek at the thought of trying out your poetry or micropoetry on the Twitter audience, who will use their fingers to LIKE or ReTweet your poetry … Twitter is great because people don’t have to say anything ‘negative’ if they don’t like your poem. It just won’t get LIKED or RT-d. So, passively, you can choose to delete it and/or to peruse your mind and revise your original poem – just keep working toward the goal of 10 RTs by pinning the Tweet onto your Twitter page!

Recap: Tweet micropoetry or commentaries of Shakespeare without an image. Or take a picture of a poem in a book. Whatever the look, choose fantastic pictures to highlight your artistic talent. And go ahead and put your own picture on your own poem!

Bonus: If you use vitweep.com for text Tweets, they automatically attach an image with your photo and poem to your plain text – super deal!
