TweetBookz: Would you turn 200 tweets into a book?
I’ve written just over 4,000 tweets since I signed up for Twitter several years ago, but I think I’d be hard-pressed to choose 200 of a high enough quality to turn into a book.
However, new startup TweetBookz has decided there must be enough Twitter fanatics who would like to do just that.
Cofounders Jacob Schwirtz and Asael Kahana said that the service offered a “fun way to look back on your favourite tweets and capture all the emotion of those moments to keep forever.”
For $20 (softback) or $30 (hardback), a 5.5×8.5-inch 200 page book can be printed in one of four customisable designs in either English, Spanish, French or Hebrew.
Of course, if you really want to print your tweets, and maybe make them even more visually appealing, you could use other book publishers and design the book yourself, but TweetBookz is another interesting third-party application potentially making money from Twitter.
Would you put 200 of your tweets in a book? Would you give it as a gift to someone else? Are your archived tweets that scintillating?

this is so narcissist but I loved the simplicity of the business model! Im ordering one right now just to congratulate their creativity and obviously cuz one must learn to love oneself by starring in the mirror too much hehe just joking XD
I wouldn’t do a blog out of my own tweets. They’re just noise. Nice idea, “lickable” graphics, but… not for me.
Could be a great gift for a Twitter fan. I don’t know, I’ll have to watch this and make contact with people using it. I need to know how they feel about it. Like, ooh, I have my own Twitters inside a book in my bookcase. Wanna see it?
