Here's what real readers are saying about Twitter In 30 Minutes:
"I've been tweeting for over a year but learned a lot if helpful details I hadn't been aware of until now. Lots of easy to understand info, and good instructions with screenshots that make it easy to understand. Thanks for the help and making Twitter even more fun."
"Just the quick, light intro I wanted. No annoying bits of philosophy. Some careful warnings about privacy and courtesy are included. You really can skim it in 30 minutes."
"Easy to read and actually fun to fire up my twitter account and play along with each chapter. Everyone has 30 spare minutes spread out over a week (if not a day) to read this guide."
"I quickly set up a Twitter account and started using it within a half hour. I would recommend this book for anyone who doesn't have a Twitter account, for those who do have one but aren't actively using it, and for those who aren't quite sure how to get the most out of their account."
"Though I have been using Twitter for some time now, I still learned a thing or two from reading this."
"Clarified any issues I had or concerns and listed some excellent precautions."
"Perfect introduction to Twitter. Quick and easy read with lots of photos. I finally understand the #!"
