Valuable information but not enough to make it worth purchasing the mini edition. Still had lots of questions. My recommendation is to purchase the maxi version.
Mostly a ra-rah screed that gives little nuts and bolts directions on USING it. A third of it describes how to sign up another part on changing your profile and more about why you should use Twitter. How to address a person with the @ symbol I didn't see--maybe it's there, but Ishouldn't have to search for the most basic function. Written at the junior-high level, it is not the book to go to for uuseful info.
Where do tweets on what's happening go? Is incoming only from follows.?
