Twit Twit Twit: Crispin Best

I love Crispin’s tweets. Mainly they are plays on words, puns, or subversions of famous lyrics. It is a great example of how Twitter gives an insight into a poet’s work. Crispin’s work is often presented in a fragmented way, humorous and is sometimes aware when an occasion needs capital letters. So Twitter is a medium where he feels very at home. In fact, Crispin has said before the he considers Twitter as his notebook. What a wonderful way of appreciating the work of a great poetry bro.







Twit Twit Twit is a regular series where I will be focusing on several poets who are on Twitter and showcasing some of my favourites from their previous tweets.
