“A whimsical collection of the best tweets so far, pithy posts that say a lot in 140 characters or less. ” (Associated Press)
“No matter your opinion of Twitter, you can enjoy some laughs in these 140-character (or fewer) communiques from hundreds of folks, compiled by techno-smartie Douglas.” (Sacramento Bee)
“Douglas has collected 158 pages of proof that some of the millions of typists on Twitter are laugh-out-loud funny. A few are masters of compression, able to illuminate our common humanity in a couple of lines of text. String enough of them together in the right order, as Douglas has done, and you’ve got a crowdsourced replacement for David Foster Wallace, without the too-long-didn’t-read factor.” (LA Weekly)
