Tweenets - @Airplume


"Tweenets is a portmanteau word made up of Tweets + sonnets. Coined in the early days of Twitter when the maximum number of characters was set at only 140, tweenets are autonomous compressions of Shakespeare's sonnets, while intending to somewhat update the feeling and tone of the originals."
