I really appreciated this book. I’ve been in the position of recommending ways of tweeting for companies, and as I read this book, I wish I’d had it earlier, as its advice is spot-on and well-written. Twitter so easily intimidates people, and Fouts makes it approachable and useful. A quick read, and very valuable. Worth getting to prevent all of those mistakes that people make when using Twitter, too. Especially great for people who manage Twitter accounts for consumer brands. Spot-on. Fouts is an “uber-twitterer,” and got me started a few years ago embracing the very powerful medium for professional, and personal means. Her books are very approachable and have such gems of wisdom, it’s truly a treat to see another one published. A definite must-have if you so any kind of social media in your job.
