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.

It's NOT techie and boring and dry. It's NOT "use it like this or you're stupid!". It's NOT pandering to marketers or "social media experts" or twitter dummies.
It IS funny, informative, and well-written. It IS helpful in showing the reader around the many, many, many applications that have been created for twitter use.
I've been with twitter a long time but I learned a few things while being engaged.
Get this book - you won't be sorry.
The book will take you step-by-step in opening up an account, choosing an appropriate profile picture, expressing yourself in 140-character-maximum tweets, and of course a lot more. The other reviews and Amazon's review pretty much summed up the basic ideas you can find in this book, but I will say that the book even tells you how to use and track hashtags, and shorten URLs. These two can be used not just on Twitter, but other sites as well. You can also learn about Twitter-related applications on other websites that can help you make the most of your social media experience.
After you read this, you should be able to get Twitter on your phone (through text messages, Blackberry, G1, or iPhone), send your tweets to Facebook, send links in your tweets, and market products or causes to the masses. If you're the type of person that can easily learn how to use internet applications on your own, you won't need the entire book, but it may be worth your while to skim it or borrow it to make sure you're completely proficient on how to use Twitter.
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?!"
