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.

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.

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.

Like it or not, Twitter and other social media are here to stay for a long time. If you want to keep up with the times, especially if you own a business or promote a certain cause, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with Twitter. This book will explain to you all you need to know top open and organize your account. It's a good idea to keep the book next to you as you navigate the site.

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.

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?!"
