Trending: It takes two to make a tweet go right

This is as geeky as it gets, but great. An automated Twitter account scans hundreds of feeds to make unwitting poets of random people talking random rubbish.

@Pentametron identifies tweets accidentally written in imabic pentameter, the 10-syllable, alternating-stress meter. It then pairs rhyming lines from people who don't know each other and retweets them in surreal couplets. Its purpose: "to find inadvertent poetry in the endless torrents of language that slosh around the internet". Some recent examples:

When all the shadows almost

kill the light,

Don't ask her on a straight tequila

night

Last desperate housewives ever

#bittersweet,

My twitter, my opinions. Have

a seat

I broke her heart in 30 seconds

flat,

This morning's workout was

exactly that
