It might sound ridiculous to say that I was really excited to read this book, but I was! I really love Grace Dent, having read her TV columns for a few years in the Guardian. And yes, I follow her on Twitter.

It was a dry, witty book that definitely had some well-observed pieces about the various people you find in the Twittersphere. This book was funny, but didn't quite live up to my expectations. As I was nearing the end my boyfriend asked me whether I was finding it funny. I asked why, and he said "You haven't laughed once". Not the best for a very light read.

I don't think a really long review is exactly necessary here: if you use Twitter a lot, you'll probably find it a good read and fairly witty. It's not going to have you laughing until you can't catch your breath, but a pleasant distraction nonetheless.
