The Longest Poem in the World?

It is "The Longest Poem in the World" - though some of you may question its claim to be a poem at all.

It is a kind of found poem made by aggregating real-time public Twitter updates and selecting those that rhyme. It a project of Andrei Gheorghe.

It is constantly growing at about 4000 lines per day.

If you click the ellipsis [...] at the bottom of the poem, you can see more of it.

What do you think - poem, or online tech babble?

It's too informal to be a renga, but perhaps it is a new form.
