Social Media Week: Tweet Slam

Tweet what?!? Yep you heard me.. Tweet Slam! Think poetry slam crunched into 140 characters or less. I was a judge during the event held at the ultra cool Artisphere— which has quickly become one of my favorite spaces in the DC area. In the end the winner was Natalie aka @PoetryRox on twitter. She was amazing and walked away with a $140 cash prize.

Here is one of my favorite twitter poems of the night by #Leo:

Into this empty bottle, I deposit all the things you can’t recycle #Leo #TweetSlam @Artisphere #SMWWDC

With winner Natalie and fellow #TweetSlam judges Gloria and Amy and event host Holly Bass
