Breakup Tweeters: thank you for making February 14, 2012 the best Valentine's Day ever. The Canada Writes team and judge Tabatha Southey (@TabathaSouthey) had a blast reading your 5,000+ entries to the first-ever Breakup Tweet Challenge.  

We'd also like to take a moment to send a special thank-you to our official Canada Writes Breakup Tweet reader: Tabatha's daughter Alice, who was glued to the feed with her mother all day and squeezed Visine into Tabatha's eyes at regular intervals. Alice, you're a marvel!

We'll be announcing Tabatha's choice for the winning tweet on Wednesday, February 22. But first, Tabatha's giving us her picks in nine—that's right, nine—different All-Star categories. Today, "topical" and "rhyming."

Best topical tweets

@craddo I'm still too emotionally exhausted from suddenly caring about Whitney Houston. 

@elcostello On the bright side, it seems to have worked out for AdeIe.

@bellyofawhale I can't be with someone who knows so much about Skrillex.

Best rhyming tweets

@bnemett Our love is akin to a tippy canoe. But, I stopped paddling like way back in the Sioux 

@marcusdjeffrey Our love sprung forth from passion wildly, but ends with words I now speak mildly. 

@srigawntufahr My heart was a chalice, and you were the wine, but those days are long gone, I want out of this slime. 

Stay tuned for Part 2 of Tabatha's All-Star Tweets tomorrow: the "domestic breakup" and "heartfelt" categories.
