  1. I co authored this book, so I m biased, but I think we did a great job on putting together a quick read that teaches a whole lot, quickly, and does a decent job of spanning the range from novices to experienced users.


  2. This little book is chock full of helpful hints on how to use Twitter The format is very good for those who like things in Tweet sized chunks Each 2 page spread has a short blurb of text on the right, giving you one nugget of information, and screen shots of actual tweets on the left that are examples of what that page is talking about.They talk about getting started with Twitter, how to listen in and learn how it works, how Twitter can be used for conversations and tips to do that effectively [...]


  3. I got this semi randomly I wanted to get O Reilly s latest WTF What s the Future and Why It s Up to Us from the library but it was out, and this one happened to be available, so I grabbed it, not even really knowing what it was I would have expected an analysis of Twitter s technology, impact, and business but it turned out to be a simple introduction to what Twitter is and how to get started on it.The book was published in 2009 Many of the fundamentals are still valid, of course 140 characters [...]

  6. I don t get Twitter, after reading this book I understand it a little better but still don t really see the attraction to the service that because of it s limitations 160 characters, no RSS feeds any forces users to learn or guess at abbreviations to understand what people are talking about I m not a facebook user either but that s about privacy concerns then obections to the service I m on Google because Google already had my info through gmail, blogger, docs, calendar But I wanted to understa [...]


  7. Twitter is one of the buzzwords most bandied about in terms of social media and marketing, yet it is the one that most defies simple explanation In most cases, when someone asks about Twitter they are told that they just need to explore it for themselves Some see Twitter as the ultimate expression of narcissism I m eating a bowl of cereal right now but at the same time it has become a force for information much early information on the Mumbai terrorist attacks and the plane landing in the Hudson [...]

  12. This was a great and instructional book for everything you need to know about Twitter Unfortunately I have been on Twitter for some time, and found I knew the details of the book already However, for those that don t know of Twitter, and I m sure there s a few, this book would be the best tool to familiarize yourself with it An easy lay out and illustrations show you step by step all there is to Tweeting I am putting this on my recommendation list, for the savvy people out there


  13. Some great ideas for the beginner twitterer, or for those looking to add some very simple and fast social media to their marketing repertoire I highly suggest interacting with the authors online they can personalize the experience of reading the book to your particular needs, questions and ideas Check out all of the websites they suggest, as well even if you don t use them, you ll have an idea of what s available to your followers.


  14. Fun and concise book about Twitter, just like Twitter itself I m a Twitter fan and I often found myself nodding in agreement with what I d just read I picked up this book hoping for tips on commercial branding aspects of using Twitter, instead of personal ones I didn t learn much, but it doesn t mean the book was bad it s just only about Twitter itself as a service and a community, not going into possible applications Great overview if you re getting started with Twitter.


  15. This book written in a straight forward, informative way that will not intimidate readers who have never used the micro blogging service Twitter before.Even if you are a twitter veteran, Tim O Reilly and Sarah Milstein include great tips and third party resources any one can use to get the most of this popular and powerful service.Highly recommended.


  16.

  20. Este es un libro que no debes dejar de leer si pretendes dar un uso profesional a Twitter Si eres un usuario ocasional, en este libro encontrar s muchos consejos y datos interesantes sobre esta red social.


  21. Un libro super completo per chi non ha mai usato Twitter Tendenzialmente inutile per tutti gli altri Bello il formato, ma un libro su qyuesti temi nasce gi vecchio la conferma che ad un anno di sitanza sono inutili il 40% dei contenuti riportati.


  22. An excellent little book for learning the basics including Twitter navigation, terminology and methods for building followers of your account Resources are provided for linking your Twitter account with other social media networks Recommended for anyone new to Twitter.


  23. Fairly 101 for anybody who already uses Twitter regularly, but I expected that Still worth it for some of the tips and sites recommended, not to mention that the section on business will come in handy when talking to superiors about our org joining Twitter.

  26. A simple, concise introduction to twitter that hits all the main points One caveat since this book was written twitter has made some minor updates so a few of the instructions aren t 100% accurate.


  27. It s good for Twitter newbies that want to learn though, may be a bit daunting in some parts The only thing that bugged me is the chapters aren t well labeled confusion would set in when they d refer back to such and such chapter Contains a few good URLs for Twitter resources.


  28. A great guide for Twitter novices like myself It takes you through the whole process, from creating your profile to hashtagging to retweeting The final section was about businesses and Twitter which was not relevant to me, but, the rest of the book was very useful.
