Micropoetry Twitter Hashtag Definitions

On twitter, hundreds of micropoets share their work with each other through the use of twitter hashtags. Hashtags help twitter authors to find each other through the millions of other posts that flood the social network. Micropoets generally use obvious keywords such as #micropoetry, #haiku and #tanka. The problem is that there are many not so obvious tags, and it can be hard to know what they all mean.

To make sense of these hashtags, I have broken them into three categories. Certain tags may appear more than once. Some tags may have little or no poems. Please click on a hashtag to find out more…
