Twitter tweet...

if you think I'm talking about birds, you're behind the times. Twitter is a social networking site (yes, another one) which is somewhere between an RSS feed and a mini-blog, for the attention-span impaired. Basically, a user creates a profile with a brief (naturally) bit of information about themselves, then sets about choosing what other users to 'follow' on Twitter.

Users can update each other on everything from the mundane to the personal to the bizarre, all in neat 140 character packages (called 'Tweets'), and in some cases, hundreds of times per day. Some people are so jacked in to Twitter that they utilize a feature which enables Tweets to be sent directly to their mobile phones or PDAs. Twitter was founded in 2006, and already boasts roughly 6 million users. There are already plenty of books about Twitter, for those who would like to learn more, but they're rather dull.

Our preferred Twitter books are listed here. They all contain over 140 characters - even the coloring book. And with all that said, you can follow AbeBooks on Twitter for tweets on our latest articles, features, blog posts and contests!
