Peter's Twittclass by Peter Barns

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


After reading a few quotes from famous people posted on Twitter, I decided to create and post some of my own.
Unlike the other quotes, which were mainly serious or witty, my quotes tended to be silly and humorous, and were posted as #Twittclass items.
Reading through these posts sparked some ideas for nonsense verse and so this book was born.
As the poems are short, Twittclass makes the ideal companion for those moments on the toilet when you have little else to do but stare at the wall opposite and dream what you'll do when you win the lottery.
