    1. EDIT: the publisher for this book is amazing. they even mailed me a copy of the book. The book is pretty and every page created with care. The poetry is awful. I think maybe if you are into Slam poetry it might actually appeal to you. I couldn't get into the book because there just is no flow to it. I thought it would be #edits not edited#s. if that makes sense an example without giving the book would be Intitial tweet: Today I ate a hot dog and I spilled mustard on my shirt. I found out from th [...]

    2. Published by Burning Eye Books, Hashtag Poetry# is a collection of dissected tweets arranged into poems by Clive Birnie. The poems go through a variety of structural and aesthetic shifts, which I found very interesting. There is a short explanation of Birnie’s methods and reasons for these changes at the end of the book, which I absolutely adored. I would have loved to have even more of Birnie’s thoughts, but I imagine that many of these are, appropriately, voiced on his twitter page, which [...]

    3. In the Hashtag Poetry Project Clive Birnie explores the hidden poetry of Twitter by taking screen grabs of random collations of three or four tweets on an iPhone screen. He then redacts and erases them using photo editing apps before applying his distinctive patterns of colored dots inspired by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.So there were 3 reasons why I wanted to read this book: the first being the fun cover, the second was the overall idea which I thought to be very interesting and the third [...]

    4. I wanted to read this book because the cover is quite catchy, all those dots with the Twitter logo in the center. Also, I've been interested in blackout poetry lately and I wanted to see how this works out with tweets. Browsing through the first few pages, my eyes were begging me to stop. There's just too much colors, it's hard to decide where to look at. It seems the author cannot make up his mind whether to isolate the words using ink blackouts or XXXXXs or randomly-scattered dots, so why not [...]

    5. *disclaimer; free copy reviewed*disclaimer 2: I work looking at how digital technology impacts upon children's writing. I loved this book. I thought it was so creative. The poems are created with snippits from tweets. The poems at the start look like actual tweets with words scribbled over (to leave only the ones wanted), and at the end, only the word that are wanted are visible; everything else is covered by dots that have been digitally added. I loved the effect, it was like a transition in hi [...]

    6. A very interesting concept.I won the book in a Giveaway. The cover of the book attracted my eye and I was intrigued to find out what words that had been 'grabbed' from twitter would look like as a poem on a page surrounded by dots. Well, I think it looked odd. At first. It kind of grew on me but I couldn't look at the pages for many seconds for fear of developing a migraine. The concept is very interesting and in some instances it works. For the most part though, for me, I don't think I 'got' i [...]

    7. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book through a Giveaway. This has not influenced my review.I was curious about the idea behind this book, and the poetry really is quite good. As always with collections there are some I couldn't get into, but I found quite a few I really liked. The only major problem I have is with the design. I had imagined cute little dots, but what I got instead often looks more like someone vomited confetti over the pages. It can be hugely distracting from the act [...]

    8. Hashtag Poetry by Clive Birnie is a digital take on the art of blackout poetry where new meaning is found in taking away certain elements from a text. For this book, Birnie uses screenshots from his Twitter feed to create new thoughts and ideas from the original content. I've enjoyed this type of poetry from a variety of authors on Instagram and other places online. Birnie fits in with the style, though the colored dots/confetti spread across each work sometimes detracts from the poem itself. Th [...]

    9. I wanted to read Hashtag Poetry: The Hidden Poetry of Twitter, Cut-up, Painted and Posted to Instagram because I was intrigued by the concept. Poetry presented in a clever new way. And it is presented in a new way, but the overall result falls far short of what I'd hoped for. The cut/paste, hashtag blackouts, excessive color, hard to find and read words, are distracting and the poetry is poor as well. Here's an example of how to take an original concept and turn it into an overall messed up mish [...]

    10. Wish Tristan Tzara was my contemporary. He would have find infinite inspiration in our funny over technical world. Trying to compensate this absence, Clive Birnie created with the help of apps and random colourful dots by Yayoi Kusama works of poetry that combines the brievity of the Haiku with the logical absurdity of dadaism. Twitter and Instagram are the huge screens and the inspiration for this sample of literay game. Disclaimer: I was offered the book via NetGalley, but the opinions are, as [...]

    11. This one little star is for concept. I came into this book excited and curious because I find the idea fascinating. The finished product is disastrous, however. I am so disappointed. The poetry is terrible. It lacks the intelligence and beauty I excepted to find. The design is loud and ridiculous. Under any other circumstance I would love polka dots but here they are a mistake.I do not recommend this book. It was a waste of my time.I received my copy of Hashtag Poetry through NetGalley in exchan [...]

    12. This idea had a lot of potential, and it did occasionally reach it. Overall, however, I found it to be a little disappointing.
