Time for another book.
The History of the World Through Twitter, by Jon Holmes and Mitch Benn; Fore-tweet by Stephen Fry
This is a very funny little book for anyone who has found themselves shortening sentences to that all important 140-characters.
100 key moments from history are picked and reported in tweets – those 140-character maximum bite-sized chunks that are so familiar to Twitter users – and anyone who has read a newspaper in the last six months – today. But this book is more than just a straight re-telling of history…Twitter is perhaps the most potent and versatile phenomenon yet thrown up by the web and the authors have created a fresh, hilarious, original and just occasionally (sort of) educational book which will take full advantage of the extraordinary popularity of Twitter.
