Texting as Poetry - I Like It

There was an interesting article in the Guardian UK by Carol Ann Duffy, who is a poet laureate, and she feels Texting is a form of Poetry.....I Like It.

I taught poetry for years in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.....short succinct lines of language, that sometimes need deeper thought and interpretation. Texting is very similar, so is Twitter!

Entire article here.....

Also, a great YouTube video about a teacher using Twitter in his classroom!
