@NYCMayorsOffice calls New Yorkers to Poetweet

Send Mike Bloomberg your best Twitter haiku!

Did you know? April is National Poetry Month!

And to celebrate, the New York City Mayor's Office is holding its third annual Twitter poetry “Poetweet” contest, which began Friday. The best poems will be published in Metro later this month.

The rules of the contest are simple: Tweet your best poems to @NYCMayorsOffice. Keep it clean and keep it to one tweet.

Anyone is invited to compete, so start scribbling now and tweet your best rhymes, verses and haikus using #NYCpoetweet. Tweet your submissions by April 20 to be considered for publication in Metro on April 26, New York's tenth anniversary "Poem in Your Pocket" day.

Multiple submissions are welcome, but each "poetweet" must be limited to one tweet only.
