Default Trump tweet erasure poems

I just came across this online:



So, find yourself a Trump tweet, white/grey out some letters and see what you can come up with.

EDIT: Just found the original tweet, which was: "Wow, the Republican Convention went so smoothly compared to the Dems total mess. But fear not, the dishonest media will find a good spinnnn!" It seems that in places parts of letters were erased, a 'P' to an 'R', for example, which makes this a bit harder to do with just text.

Hey Jim,

Well found. What was the original tweet? One option, if you can't doctor the image, would be to type the whole thing in, and use light grey for the parts you want to hide -- or even white; then it'll show up when the text is selected.

I did actually do a couple of these and didn't post them. I'll look them out.

-Matt
