You will sometimes find haiku poems on twitter appended with the twitter hashtag #nahaiwrimo. The ‘nahaiwrimo’ tag stands for National Haiku Writing Month. This is an ongoing twitter hashtag game that begun in February sometime and continued. Here’s how they explain it on their website…

‘Write one haiku a day for the month of February! Why February? Because it’s the shortest month—for the world’s shortest genre of poetry. Join poets around the world who pledge to write at least one haiku a day for National Haiku Writing Month during the shortest month of the year. Or write haiku every day of every month, all year round, on the NaHaiWriMo site on Facebook, with daily writing prompts to inspire you.’
