“Twitterati” – a poem

Observing life
One hundred and forty characters 
at a time
A soundbite for an emotion,
Thought or deed
Follow, Unfollow
RT
Block/Delete
For thoughtless words
From total strangers
View into the spyhole of my life
And form an opinion
based on a short sentence
Come, observe
Judge
There are no “likes” here
Be a friend.
Form a group,
Of like minded souls
With similar interests.
Friends from countries a far
Time zones shattered
Through the complicity
Of duplicity.
So give me a minute or three
To interact with strangers on my PC
Internet friends
Who are stranger than me
Avoiding the rubbish
On my TV
