140 Characters is the best Twitter book yet

Tyler HurstReview13 Comments

Email changed the way we communicate. Texting changed the way we write. Twitter changed the way we think about writing. Seriously.

Communication is becoming more succinct. It’s more targeted. Dom Sagolla’s new book 140 Characters (affiliate link) explains exactly that.

As one of the 14 founders of Twitter, @dom has an unmatched perspective on Twitter’s conception, but that’s not really what the book is about. It’s about language and how we should interpret and use it.

For those struggling on what to say and how to say it, this is your guide. It’s a quick, plane-ride length read. Be sure to pick up the print version, as a reference guide like this wouldn’t make much sense in audiobook form.

(@dom gave this book to me without charge @140conf, but I was under no obligation or agreement to write a review)

    “Communication is becoming more succinct. It’s more targeted.” Do you think this is a good or bad thing? As an avid reader (not a grammar nazi).. I think the quality of works being produced has gone down hill significantly in the last 30 years, but the quantity has gone up. Im not sure if this is good or bad.
