TWITTER – Tips, Tricks and Tweets
Paul McFedries
Wiley Publishing – NZ$37.99 – Aust$32.95

The book targets the millions of users getting into Twitter to connect friends, family, and interest groups. Coverage on how to establish a Twitter account, tweet from mobile devices, and how to add Twitter to a blog is approached in a user-friendly manner so anyone can apply the tips and techniques described in this book.
There is quite a lot of duplication in content between these two titles and if I had to choose between them I would opt for this one, slightly smaller, more interesting interior format, colour throughout, and for me anyway easier to follow..
