What is a Twaiku?

Micropoetry | Haiku | Gogyohka | Tanka | Senryu | Twaiku | 1-6 lines | 3-10 words

A twaiku is a haiku posted on Twitter, so is limited to 140 characters. Most twaikus would not meet the more traditional definitions of haiku, partly because they tend to miss kidai or kigo, a reference to the season in which the haiku is set. Such a stringent definition also includes kireji, or “cutting word”, a special emphasis on a particular part of the haiku. You might also want to visit twihaiku for more examples.

Here are the latest twaiku micropoems live from twitter, (a few poems may be in Japanese).Twitter hashtag: #twaiku
