    You’ve always wished your tweets were a little more poetic, right? Well, now there’s the perfect app for you: Poetweet.

    Poetweet mashes up your account’s recent tweets, letting you choose from sonnet, rondel or indriso forms.

    Since it doesn’t require you to sign in, you can try it out with other people’s accounts too. For example, here’s a poem about Taco Bell.
