    Excellent Intro for Twitter Newbies

    As a newcomer to Twitter I looked at a few books to get me quickly up to speed. I found many of them to be text-heavy and, in keeping with the 140-character Tweet limit, I was looking for something rather more pithy. This book hits that spot precisely. Richly illustrated with pictorial examples, the book is a light read but right but up to date and pretty comprehensive in its coverage. I've learnt a lot, including about stuff I didn't realize I needed to know about. Good value and good. Recommended.

    A nice little book that helps "the rest of us" understand the Twitter craze!

    I bought this book (along with a "Missing Manual" book by O'Reilly about Facebook) to get a better understanding about how to use Twitter and "social media" for both personal reasons (not that I have a lot to say in 140 characters or less) and professional (having already decided to get the word out about the Financial Aid Office at the community college I work at) reasons.

    "The Twitter Book" was just the right combination of technical information and non-tech info to getting a good working knowledge of Twitter and how to use it for a variety of reasons. Although the book isn't technical in nature, it certainly covers all of the necessary topics to understanding how to utilize the best aspects of Twitter.

    I'm sure there are more comprehensive tomes on Twitter (let alone, Facebook and other social media platforms), but The Twitter Book is GREAT is its approach (easy to read, yet not written for tech-Neaderthals) and conveys just enough information to guide you along the path to a) starting to use Twitter and b) starting to learn more Twitter (through usage and other source).

    For its price, it's a great little read. Don't pass it up.

    Great Resource

    This book is valuable once you can get familiar with the organization of it. You need a basic knowledge of Twitter to learn everything in it.
