(This post was written by me and published on my Facebook page when I created my Twitter handle back in May 2010. I like a million others was curious as a cat to discover Twitterverse. With this poem, I quite like how what I had in my mind translated into words. Enjoy reading and if you will, follow me on @HanishaLalwani.)
*Tweet! Tweet!* Who is it?
A little blue bird, 'Twitter' is what you call it!
I'm spreading my wings and flying with it...
For those out of it, are sadly missing out on it!
Once I'm on it there's no fighting it,
He's on it, she's on it, even it's on it...
And if you're not yet on it,
Then you must be quite a twit!
Celebs tweet randomness on it,
Crazy fans are lovin’ every bit of it...
The media is spying all over it,
Tharoor and Modi fell in a soup ‘cause of it!
Corporates are spending millions on it,
Students and teachers are debating over it...
Inside the studio, musicians are wasting time on it,
Outside the office, politicians babble false promises on it!
But hey! Jamie Oliver's revealing secret recipes over it,
Catch the comic Stephen Fry, voted the funniest on it...
President Chavez hires 200 to assist him with it,
Off the field, Tendulkar's playing with words on it!
You'd be the first to know anything and everything on it,
Follow and boast of many followers on it...
Simply type 140 characters...yes really that is it,
Don't ask me how, somehow try to make it fit!
So if you still want to, why don't you get on it,
The second you feel it, you only have to tweet it...
Unveil your best nightmares and worst dreams on it,
Like me if you're bored, maybe write a poem on it!
Since it takes barely a minute to get the hang of it,
Faster than fluttering wings, someone new is tweeting on it...
You see, 40 million tweeple haven't lost their wits,
Tell Facebook, it's passé and call it quits!
(In case you're wondering, I still Facebook.)
