The Twitter Diaries: A Tale of 2 Cities, 1 Friendship, 140 Characters by Georgie Thompson, Imogen Lloyd Webber

The Twitter Diaries tells the story of pen pals for the 21st century. Two parallel lives separated by an ocean but united over a social network.

Tuesday (@Tuesday Fields), a sports reporter, and Stella (@StellaCavill), a men's shoe designer, are Brit 30-somethings who are introduced in NYC on NYE by a mutual friend, a notorious transatlantic TV personality. They strike up an instant bond.

Over the next 365 days, @TuesdayFields and @StellaCavill put the world to rights, one tweet at a time. From Melbourne to Monaco to Magaluf, the girls flirt and fall out with athletes, movie stars, and TV personalities. And then there's their mothers...

On December 31st of the same year, @TuesdayFields and @StellaCavill meet again, for the first time since the last time. A lot can happen in a year. As it turns out,140 characters can change everything.

The Twitter Diaries is an instantly recognizable yet fictitious tale all women can relate to, whether they are one of the world's 140-million-and-counting transfixed Twitter users or not. Accessible, funny, and heart-warming, it's this summer's must read.
