The World According to Twitter by David Pogue Book Cover

Stars: ★★★★☆

Thomas Allen & Sons (2009)

Summary: The wit and wisdom of the Twittersphere captured in a hilarious, occasionally poignant, and often useful collection of hand-picked tweets. […] David Pogue has tapped into the brilliance of his half-million followers on Twitter by posting a different, thought-provoking question every night. […] Out of 25,000 tweets, Pogue has gathered the very best 2,524 into this irresistible, clever, laugh-out-loud funny book. – source.

This book is hilarious! You don’t have to have twitter to enjoy this book. It’s a humour book and you it is guaranteed that each piece is short since they all came from twitter (where tweets are no longer than 140 characters)

There are a lot of pop culture questions such as suggesting movie sequels to movies that don’t have any (such as The Day After The Day After Tomorrow.) There is also one about those things that always happen in movies that drive us nuts (like no one paying or eating their food.)

I loved the one about subject lines of email you wouldn’t want to see and even better is the one that shows spam from the future.

About the Author: David Pogue is a NY Times Tech Columnist and host of PBS Nova. You can follow him on twitter where he has way more than 500,000 followers now!
