An anthology of the best material from the first nine years of microblogging, the book’s quotes about school, job-seeking, work, business communication, unemployment, aging, loss of attractiveness, death, poverty, Internet addiction, and the disappearance of privacy are both funny and profound. Find your own situation reflected and perhaps re-defined through humor. Learn how to be more entertaining, succinct and persuasive in a range of situations. Become more subliminal, ironic and sublime.
