TwitterHaiku -- A Thing for making haiku from Twitter searches

TwitterHaiku lets you find a haiku-like tweet. That is to say that it finds 17 syllable tweets from the Twitter search API and formats them so they look like a haiku. I wrote it as an amusing way to respond to a dinner invitation written in verse form which I received from from a certain Penguin. I'm very grateful to Greg Fast for making Lingua::EN::Syllable available on CPAN. It helped me to count syllables relatively reliably. I was also helped by a perlmonks post on approtioning an array almost equally by davido which put me on the right lines for apportioning words between lines.
