Poetic Twitter Bios

Lines from poems, recast as Twitter bios.

The idea occurred to me, reading a poem by Billy Collins, that a particular line could fit perfectly the form of a Twitter Bio.

I’ve since gone back through several of his collections, and found many more lines that for various reasons strike me as curiously hilarious when placed in the curious context of the Twitter bio.

I’ll update this post as I discover more, and look for the same in other poets.
