This is what I imagine an "official" Twitter book should look like,
This review is from: The Twitter Book (Paperback)
Twitter is one of the most dynamic and open social networking sites today. It is used by millions of people every day, which is pretty incredible for a site that allows you to only post 140 characters at a time. However, this apparent simplicity belies a very powerful online tool that can be used for a variety of purposes: keeping friends informed of your actions and whereabouts, finding out what your friends are up to, tracking news trends, finding information that even news sites have not yet published, and promoting yourself, your products or your business.
There are plenty of books out there on Twitter, but what impresses me about this one is that it strikes a perfect balance between an entertaining read and a useful resource filled with many useful and non obvious tricks and tips. The book is divided in six sections, covering things like setting up your account, "listening" to Twitter updates, conversing with various twitterers, sharing information and ideas, providing more information about yourself and a special section on Twitter for business use. On the facing side of each page there are a few interesting snapshots of actual Twitter posts. These sometimes serve to amuse, and sometimes to illustrate the points that are being discussed in the text. All of these illustrations are, just like the book itself, both amusing and useful.
If Twitter ever came up with their ow official book, it is hard to imagine how it would be much different than this one. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in making the most out of their Twitter experience.
