Thanks to author Karen Barnes, though, there is now a handy tutorial – a sort of ‘Twitter for Dummies’ – that will very smoothly guide you through the process from setting up a Twitter account, to understanding things like #hashtags and @mentions, to effective Twitter strategies. A useful book for anyone who wants to communicate short messages, or links to longer messages, to a massive audience – and being in e-Book format, it’s appropriate. Barnes knows her way around the Twitterverse, and is a good tour guide. My only complaint about the book, which I received free in exchange for a review, is that the opening chapter is a bit too long. Much of what is in that chapter could have been an opening paragraph of the next chapter. But, that just might be my bias from spending too much time reading truncated Internet messages – yes, and Twitter too.
Would that we could all write books that there would be only one picayune complaint about. Kudos to Banes for a wonderfully useful book.
She does a great job telling you how to avoid the many pitfalls that turn people off or waste your time. You'll discover how to use hashtags (those #s you see, in case you don't know), and how to be a responsible social citizen.+ This book will help you use twitter wisely without using your day.
I also appreciate that she does not tell you to automate everything and come off as a bot. You'll be a real person with minimal use of the tools that supposedly save you time but only make you seem unreal.
If Twitter confounds or confuses you, get this book.

The author does a good job of offering components that need to be in your plan, something we all seem to need.
I withheld the 5th star simply because the book, while very useful, does not qualify as "earth shattering."
It opened my eyes, and now I know how to use them. I'm reading each section slowly so I can see how it will help sell my books. http://amzn.to/nUIB57
