Overview

The wit and wisdom of the Twittersphere captured in a hilarious, occasionally poignant, and often useful collection of hand-picked tweets.

"New York Times" technology columnist David Pogue has tapped into the brilliance of his half-million followers on Twitter by posting a different, thought-provoking question every night. The questions ranged from the earnest ("What's your greatest regret?") to the creative ("Make up a concept for a doomed TV show") to the curious ("What's your great idea to improve the cell phone?"). Out of 25,000 tweets, Pogue has gathered the very best 2,524 into this irresistible, clever, laugh-out-loud funny book. "The World According to Twitter" is truly a grand social networking experiment, in which thousands of voices have come together to produce a unique and wonderful record of shared human experience.
