About the Author

Tee Morris has been an active member of the Twitter community since 2007 and part of the Web 2.0 movement even longer.

He established himself as a pioneer of podcasting by being the first to podcast a novel in its entirety. His fantasy epic, MOREVI, went on to be a finalist for the 2006 Parsec Award for Best Podcast Novel. That production also led to the founding of Podiobooks.com, the writing of Podcasting for Dummies (with Chuck Tomasi and Evo Terra), and the writing of Expert

Podcasting Practices for Dummies (with Evo Terra and Ryan Williams). Tee continues to explore the application of blogging, podcasting, and Twitter at Imagine That! Studios (online at imaginethatstudios.com), and has spoken across the country and around the world on Social Media for Book Expo America, NOAA, Te Papa Tongarewa: The Museum of New Zealand, and LIANZA.

Along with being a Social Media specialist, Tee is a columnist and critic for AppleiPhoneApps.com and writes Science Fiction and Fantasy found in print at Dragon Moon Press and in audio at TeeMorris.com. His fantasydetective novel, The Case of The Singing Sword: A Billibub Baddings Mystery, received an Honorable Mention for ForeWord Magazine’s 2004 Book of the Year award, Finalist for the 2005 Independent Publisher’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Best Audio Drama: Long Form at the 2008 Parsec Awards.

More About the Author

Tee Morris began his writing career with his 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana. Tee then released in 2004 The Case of The Singing Sword: A Billibub Baddings Mystery which was earned him honors from ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards. It was in 2005 when his idea -- podcasting a novel -- established him as a pioneer in the Social Media movement, becoming the first author to podcast a book in its entirety. That experience led to the founding of Podiobooks.com (with Evo Terra and Chris Miller), the premier site for podcast literature.

Tee took his collaboration with Evo Terra to print in Podcasting for Dummies (featuring Chuck Tomasi in the Second Edition), and penned other social media titles including All a Twitter (Que Publishing) and Sams Teach Yourself Twitter in 10 Minutes (Pearson Education). Other non-fiction titles Tee has contributed to include BenBella Books's Farscape Forever: Sex, Drugs, and Killer Muppets, the Complete Guide to Writing fantasy series from Dragon Moon Press, and BenBella Books' So Say We All: Collected Thoughts and Opinions of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

In 2011 Tee Morris returned to his first love -- fiction -- alongside his wife, Pip Ballantine, with Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel (Harper Voyager). This title went on to win the 2011 Airship Award for Best Steampunk Literature, and was a finalist (the only steampunk to make the final round in any category) for Goodread's Choice Awards under Best Science Fiction of 2011. 2012 saw the release of The Janus Affair: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel (Harper Voyager). The sequel was also a finalist in Goodreads' Choice Awards Best Science Fiction of 2012, and went on to win Steampunk Chronicle's Readers Choice of 2012 for Best Steampunk Literature. In 2013, their companion podcast Tales from the Archives received a Parsec Award for Best Podcast Anthology. Also in that year, Tee and Pip successfully funded via Kickstarter the anthology Ministry Protocol: Thrilling Tales of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences and The Ministry Initiative, a FATE-core RPG from Galileo Games. 2014 will see the release of Dawn's Early Light: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel (Ace Books).

He can still be heard podcasting short fiction with Tales from the Archives, and alongside Pip on The Shared Desk at theshareddesk.com. Find out more about his work and his life at teemorris.com and ministryofpeculiaroccurrences.com.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By P. J. Ballantine on July 23, 2009
Format: Paperback
I'm not a big fan of tech books. My eyes tend to blur as authors bombard me with fact after fact and it takes me several readings to get all that dry information straight.
This book is different. Tee Morris has written a book that feels like a friend is showing you around Twitter, complete with tips and pitfalls (love the 'Little Birdie told me' and 'Fail Whale says').
There is a lot more to this social media craze than is immediately apparent, and I can only hope plenty of people read this book and have their eyes opened to all the ways Twitter can work for them. This is the book that I will be putting in front of our computer manager so that he has some idea of 'this Twitter thing.'

I don't usually read these types of books - I like to read for fun. But guess what, this book IS fun. I have been on Twitter for about 6 months and this answered some questions I had as well as giving me new information on compatible applications, building a network and "twetiquette". I'm not using all that Twitter has to offer just yet so will keep this book around for future reference.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Gary L. Snook on August 29, 2009
Format: Paperback
If you have been contemplating jumping on to Twitter for the first time, if you're a long term Twitter user (hello, my name is Gary and I'm a tweetaholic) or if you have ever been put into the situation where someone asks you to explain Twitter, you should immediately purchase All a Twitter.

As several of the other reviews have mentioned, although All a Twitter contains all of pertinent information a new user will need, it also is extremely valuable for an experienced user as well. (I especially liked the chapter on Twitter clients) All a Twitter even contains advice on how to make Tweeting from your phone an entirely enjoyable experience.

And maybe most importantly to me, (as also mentioned previously) this book does not read like a textbook. The author obviously knows what he is talking about, but is not above having fun with his intended audience.

Extremely well written and exceedingly informative, All a Twitter is definitely a must for anyone using, or considering using, Twitter.

By Fred A. Clough on September 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is a solid homerun and a terrific read. It's written by Tee Morris, a guy that not only knows what he's talking about, but has been an active member of the Twitter community since 2007. In my opinion, he has plenty of "Tweet Cred." In about 270 easy-to-read pages, Tee covers it all; from what Twitter is, to more importantly, what it is not, to setting it up properly, taking it on the go while also providing a Ben Franklin "what I like, what I don't" on a wide variety of desktop clients and apps that have sprung up to support the Twitter community. The book contains thirteen chapters with two appendices.

While I had created a Twitter account months ago, I honestly had done little with it. Why? Beyond "tweeting" that I had just walked my dog, I wasn't sure what the fuss was about. Seems that most people who initially discover Twitter are either overwhelmed by it or use it primarily as a broadcast medium.

What impressed me the most about this book is that you will quickly realize there are quality people, and Tee is in that vanguard, that care passionately about "building a community" and are not simply typing inane phrases or focusing exclusively on trying to monetizing the Twitter experience. Social media is supposed to be about connecting. Quality of relationships and not sheer quantity of followers, is the name of the game.

I buy a lot of computer books and this is worth the money. Not surprising though, for as long as I've been reading computer books (there is no shame in admitting that), Que has been a consistently strong performer. There are tips and tricks in here that I suspect even a hardcore Twitter user will pick up. Check this book out. You will not be disappointed. The only question I had after reading it was "When is Part Two coming?!"

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Chris Miller VINE VOICE on December 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
I sat on the review of this excellent book with a long title, All A Twitter: A Personal and Professional Guide to Social Networking with Twitter, for some time. I happened to meet Tee Morris at BlogWorldExpo this fall and see where the humor and energy in the book came from. He does an excellent job of guiding the beginner and professional through the phases of Twitter.

His entry chapter What is Twitter (and What It Is Not) lays the groundwork for the reasons most people don't understand the whats and whys of Twitter and explains them in humor and direct example. For those that still don't get it, or those using it and don't get it, this is for you.

After a couple chapters on establishing an account, setting up your profile and the please do's and please do not's, he talks of working beyond the website. He does have chapters on outside tools, and I shook my head in amazement he left out EverythingTwitter as a great source to find whatever you need. Yes, I mentioned this to him jokingly in email and he took it in great fun as he must have heard from many people.

Pay special attention to the chapter on The Trouble with Twitter as it does an excellent job of covering the fail whale, issues with some very personal information sharing, signal to noise ratios and dealing with the explosive growth of Twitter and how it affects the technical performance side.

Chapters 10 and 11 cover how to use Twitter for personal and business use respectively and make the most benefit of it no matter how you wish to use it. From communicating with friends and family to promoting products/services, events, conferences, podcasts and more. In all he covers how Twitter is a tool to be used in so many ways and gives concrete examples of each.
