Twitter Wit: Brilliance in 140 Characters or Less Paperback – August 25, 2009
The Amazon Book Review
Author interviews, book reviews, editors picks, and more. Read it now
“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)

1. It gives you some of the best real examples of using clever wit in 140 character or less.
2. It gives you ideas on how to tweet with humor and wit with brevity.
3. It should make you laugh out loud.
I laughed out loud as much with this 162 page book as I have with any other book. It really makes you want to read more tweets on twitter and learn to use humor to have fun on one of the world's biggest social media sites.
To keep with the brevity of twitter I have kept the review 140 words or less.
On page 81. You have to buy it to see which one I said. Join [...] for the best of the rest of the folks!

with all the 5-star ratings I expected a better ratio- maybe closer to 40 laugh out loud entries.Read more
