By Harriet Staff

Pentametron is coming for you! Check this out, via Media Bistro:

Meet Pentametron. He’s a robotic Twitter account, but he’s not part of the spam variety – he turns tweets into Shakespeare-like poetry, using an algorithm to seek out and retweet the most poetic of our 140-character musings.

If you’re a fan of The Bard and you love technology, you’ll definitely want to give @Pentametron a follow.

More after the jump. And here's the Pentametron website, which "gathers the 14 latest retweets and lays them out in an iambic pentameter poem."
