disappointed with intent. vague

The book is primarily for organizations, wanting to know how to use twitter, as a marketing tool. The book debates about writing your own twitter tweets, or hiring a professional to do it. The book, contains many stories, about organizations and people, who connected through the twitter headquarters. In many ways, the book, fills like one big promo. The book came free, so, what do I expect? what would have been helpful for me is for the author to talk about such things, as, hashtags. what are they and how do they help you market your product or organization? The book, sits on my reference shelf, but, I doubt I will need to refer it again. One can find more helpful information on twitter, as twitter has it's own twitter!
