It’s all very well if you just want to natter to friends and random strangers about what’s happening in the land of Dr Who and the like, but if you have a business message you want to spread across the globe, you need to do something slightly more edgy than pen a witty 149 characters of key blurb.
So, we thought we’d appoint a Poet in Residence to scrawl a few catchy lines on our Twitter feed and who better to anoint than our very own Tracey West, author of the successful Poetry of Divorce: for Women and performance poet of the same.
Unfortunately, we think she may have set the bar a bit high. Since she started Tweeting on the 26th March – just a week ago – she’s written 86 of the little chaps!
Her modus operandi generally is to send a welcoming Tweet to anyone that follows our feed and her timing for producing a suitable response is about a minute and a half…she has nailed one in about 48 seconds…I know, I was watching.
If you’d like to put her to the test and receive a Westy 4-line special, follow Magic Oxygen Books on Twitter and sit back and wait…for about minute…
PS: Here are a few of my favourites!
It’s chilly out there
I’m sat here in a fleece
We’ve a new book, do look at
Our HOT press release!
Oh! I’ve just been reminded
That it is now doughnut o’clock
With tea on the side for a wash down
It should shift any limp writer’s block
A hatchet reporter
With razor sharp tools
For writers who offend
Her exacting rules
…& quite right too!…
A worth profession
When they sell their 1st book
Oh those facial expressions!
We couldn’t promote
A much better outlook
On the insides of books!
We’re positively chuffed
That you’re following our thread
But must confirm, our House Poet’s
Most certainly not dead!
