Humor in 140 characters or less.

A witty walk through the minefield of tweeting, twitter, and the many uses we have socially for it. From serious poetry to a scandalous take on improper grammar, this fast paced take on the brevity of chatting in 140 characters or less will have you falling in love with tweeting all over again.

EXCERPT

Trending

Trending is when thousands of people across a state, country, countries, or continents, (depending on your settings) all decide to tweet about the same topic. This usually involves hashtags, a topic listed under “Trending,” and many, many people looking for their moment in the spotlight. Generally, trends are about something happening on social media, the news, movies, music, or taking place in the world at the moment. New releases, and celebrities often dominate. Celebrity deaths and death hoaxes also make their appearance. For example, as I write, #royalbaby is trending because that news was just announced and 3— not 1, not 2, but 3 trending subjects are about 1Direction. There is also a #HappyBDayCamCam trending about someone named Cameron Dallas who has 3.4 Million Twitter followers, and I don’t know who he is because, well, I’m old.


Not that these aren’t THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS EVER, but occasionally, just occasionally something will trend that is interesting to writers, or nerds, or writer-nerds like me. Sometimes these are more local trending subjects, but occasionally even God arises and says- “I am TIRED of Chris Brown, and Margaret Atwood is not tweeting today— Let the Higgs-Boson Particle be found!” Then suddenly science nerds and writer nerds and wordplay nerds form a bond. Higgs-Boson trends, writers have a field day, scientists nash their teeth at all the incorrect explanations going around, thunder claps, rivers overflow, and for a brief moment, even science makes twitter news.
Higgs-Boson Tweets:
•Higgs Boson- “The Force is strong with that one.”#laymangeekbutIcanthelpit
•Ok Kids: Higgs, Top Quark, Ultra High Energy Ray, TOE. In that order. I’ll be waiting for a report at dinner. Higgs Boson
•Wow- articles are now out saying US sees stronger hints of Higgs. Way to grab the spotlight for a dead collider. CERN is EU. Higgs Boson
•True- the US found hints of Higgs Boson too, but wasnt up to more so it was kind of expected from CERN. Atom Smasher suffers collider envy.
•They might have found Higgs Boson. They might have not. Schrodinger is happy.
•Oh my- Higgs is now trending without Boson. Seriously!
•People who can make Higgs Boson jokes return my faith in humanity.
•Higgs Boson? How quaint. Where’s the (S)top Quark? What- did I just suck all the air out of CERN? Oh no wait that’s another experiment.
•Higgs Boson Why Science Works: There is no religion around supersymmetry.



MY REVIEW
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Welcome to the 21st century!!!
The Brevity Of Twit it's a little gem, full of wits, humor and poetry. The author really have an eclectic writing, how can you write poetry in 140 characters??
Like this:
. I was much more interesting when I was ignorant
. Only bad actors should stay dead
. Wow. I can't spell irrelevant. I claim typo. Yeah, that's it.
. On the other side of love I looked for you in everyone On the other side of truth I found everyone in you.
I absolutely love this book, it's adorable, cute, funny, smart, nerdy. I wish that my tweets were like this, but I'm not that smart.
Highly recommended!!
