Looking for something?

Look like the social media trend is catching on in the UK! Kings Place in London has teamed up with Network Rail to host a ‘mobile poetry contest‘ using twitter and digital signage. Travelers can participate by tweeting Haiku-style poems to @kingsplace using their mobile phones. Tweets go to the largest digital screen at King’s Cross station where they’re viewed by 110,000 people every day.

What’s the incentive? Apart from seeing their poetry displayed live, submissions go to judges Yoko Ono and UK-poet Jackie Kay MBE, and the winner gets free entrance for two at Kings Place’s Words on Monday events for an entire year.

Now this is the kind of promotion we’re talking about! Seriously, we’ve been talking about the New Media Triad for years now, and have Wiffiti to prove it. :)

    the workman has his lunch

    at Four Ways Station
    a one-eyed cat shivers twice
    before it settles
