The New Yorker Poetry Bot

The New Yorker has a long and prestigious history of publishing some of America’s finest poets. Now, that history includes Twitter: Follow the publication’s “Poetry Bot” will introduce your feed to some of the best poems from the archives. (Non-Twittering users can use Facebook Messenger to install the bot.) “In a time when many of our social-media feeds are saturated with the kind of language meant to persuade or to sell you something, the poetry bot invites a different sort of engagement,” write the editors.
