12 Most Poetic Lines About YouTube

Happy 7th Birthday Youtube! How do I love thee, let me count the ways. February 14th is Valentine’s Day and the anniversary of this popular social media platform. The first upload in 2005 was a simple 18 second video of Founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo. The service was acquired by Google in 2006 for $1.65 billion.

I probably spend more time online watching Youtube videos than any other activity. I am proud to be a member of the community although commenters can be intimidating. Lets just say I wanted to provide some more examples for this post, but I had to deem them too offensive for a family friendly crowd. I know that these trolls go with the territory. Popular Youtube series like “Your Grammar Sucks” have shown that we can find humor in this too.

What better way to celebrate the community than with an Italian style sonnet. After all it is Valentine’s Day! Here are the 12 most poetic lines about Youtube.
