Book Summary

75 key moments from history are picked and reported in tweets - those 140-character maximum bite-sized chunks that are so familiar to Twitter users. But this book is more than just a straight re-telling of history…

Twitter is perhaps the most potent and versatile phenomenon yet thrown up by the web and the authors have created a fresh, hilarious, original and just occasionally (sort of) educational book which takes full advantage of the huge popularity of Twitter.
