    Comments about oreilly The Twitter Book, 2nd Edition:

    These are the things I learnt after reading this book. I won't even hear about most of them if I didn't get my hands on this lovely book.

    1. The powerful search feature of Twitter. It helped me find some important things which Google search couldn't.

    2. It is a good way to have an idea of what people are thinking about a particular topic.

    3. The operators (@ and #) and jargon (RT, MT, via )

    4. Tweeting personal things (such as what you had for breakfast! ) , occasionally, is important and helps to build your personality and keeps you in-touch with your friends.

    5. How live-tweeting an event happens. How some speakers dynamically interact with the Twitterers.

    6. It is important to get a leave from Twitter(and all social media) for a while for your brain to function properly.

    7. How Twitter is used by businesses to build strong customer relationships.

    Sarah Milstein is the 21st user of Twitter and Tim O'Reilly needs no specific introduction. So both the writers have enough experience to write a book of this sort and the first edition of this book was regarded as the unofficial guide for Twitter by many people.

    I'm glad that I read this book because now I feel comfortable using Twitter. I give 5 starts out of 5 for this book without any hesitation.

    Comments about oreilly The Twitter Book, 2nd Edition:

    Tweet 1: Interested in Twitter's features? Don't know where to start? Should look at @timoreilly and @sarahm book. The Twitter Book.

    Tweet 2: Nice structure, guides via all these RTs, MTs, @s, #es, and all the basics related to Twitter's jargon. Don't know why 140 is the limit?

    Tweet 3: Helps to find useful tools (both web and desktop/mobile based), people, and to build good profile. Don't know who should you connect to?

    Tweet 4: Simple content. Simple language. Loots of examples. Sometime too basic content though.

    Tweet 5: Good for people interested in using Twitter as yet another communication channel.

    Tweet 6: You will enjoy the book while reading. One evening is more than enough to go through ;)
