TwitPoet poems get lots of likes an retweets, especially if they contain #hashtags and @mentions
TwitPoet was written by two engineers as a side project. It came about because of a long term interest in computer generated text and poetry, and the realization that social media would be a good source for words, and a good place to send the resulting poems. We also realized that many people struggle to find something to say on social media. These two ideas were brought together, and TwitPoet was the result.
