Twitter haiku contest

We kicked February off with a contest that asked our community to express their love for ASO through a haiku poem over Twitter, in exchange for ASO t-shirts and Moleskines. Here are the winning entries (in no particular order) listed by Twitter handle.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and keep an eye out for more contests!
