Description (in English): 

For the past three years, Jhave has been using his Twitter account as a platform for a poetic constraint. Whenever a person follows him (that is, not a 'bot) he writes a tweet poem that is exactly 140 character long. As one can see in All My Tweets, he had started this practice before, but committed to it on February 8, 2010-- "continuing the anti-pragmatic stance of twitting (doesn't that sound absurd?) only whn followed by a non-robot and always with exact letters"-- and has since adhered strictly to the constraint.

Quoted from I ♥ E-Poetry.

"I am just trivial as any other organism; perhaps more so. For I have seen tender suns rising inside the mind and still shit and scurry home."
