twitterbird-300x300Can any Twitter user become a poet? The Brazil Contemporary Art center (b_arco) has created the Poetweet tool.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the website comes in two different versions for Portuguese and English speakers. Visitors will enter their Twitter handle, choose a poetic style (sonnet, rondel, indriso), and from there enjoy the finished poem.

The Huffington Post has posted three poems derived from the Twitter feeds of writers Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, and Emily Gould. What do you think?
