The Longest Poem in the World is composed by aggregating real-time public twitter updates and selecting pairs that rhyme.

"I am going to drink wine and eat chocolate now. Egg whites be damned. Grilled shrimp tacos and a pitcher of margaritas. This place is jammed." Apparently each line comes from a different twitee. They rhyme and almost scan correctly. Nachos and an even stevens marathon! taking a shower and studying econ..

  • I thought the longest poem in the world was going on here at monkeyfilter in some old thread.
  • The above examples of twitter poetry sound suspiciously like mid-sixties Bob Dylan lyrics.
  • This is great.
  • This is awesome!!
  • Longest doggerel, okay. But poem ... nah.
