Poetry of Twitter

Recently, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals cited a tweet from Trump in its ruling against the travel ban. This rasies the question (and pretty much answers it too) over whether or not we should be taking Trump's tweets seriously. 

Suddenly, we live in a world where the president's Twitter-rants make the morning news, affect policy decisions, and oblierate dipolmacy. 

So, with this (frightening?) thought in mind, we'll direct our sights on Twitter as a resource/craft guideline for making poems. 

Can we really do this? Yes. See: Mahogany L. Browne. 

Come prepared to think critically, think irreverantly, and write at least 140 characters.
