The Tweetbook

Filed as News on March 16, 2009 5:00 am

I have no idea if this is the first book consisting solely of tweets out there, but it is here, via the magnificent world of Lulu: “My Life in Tweets” by James Bridle.

When Twitter is inevitably replaced by something else, I don’t want to lose all those incidentals, the casual asides, the remarks and responses. That’s all really. This seems like a nice way to do it, and I’ll probably do it again in a couple of years time.

Here’s a photoset.

I find this interesting for two reasons. First of all, it is an experiment with a new way of publishing. Secondly, it is a way to ensure the existence of all those tweets written, should Twitter suddenly disappear. Two years of twittering is a lot of content after all.

    Not that I want to, but there was no link anywhere I could find to buy the book.
