There is a new Twitter book out called All a Twitter. It was written by Tee Morris, author of Podcasting for Dummies. It comes with a foreword by social media guru Chris Brogan and a dedication to Jon Stewart of the Daily Show.

"Social Media has the potential of increasing your presence, both from a commercial and from a personal perspective, on the global stage," says Morris. "With All a Twitter, I bring several years of tweets and observations on Twitter’s growth, evolution, and reinvention."

This is certainly not the first book to be written about Twitter. In fact, if you search "Twitter" on Amazon, you will get about 50 results, including Twitter for Dummies (which was actually not written by Morris). Morris tries to explain why All a Twitter is different though.

"I have heard people equate ‘the power of Twitter’ with the numbers in their networks. Have you ever looked at the feeds for people who have these gargantuan followers? Usually they are endless retweets, repeated roll calls on ‘Follow Friday’ and quotes from other people," says Morris.

"Both my accounts are modest in their numbers, but I look for quality in my network," he adds. "I do not follow everyone who follows me. I block spammers. I review feeds that query me because I will always make a better judgment call than an automated service will. This is something that sets All a Twitter apart from the other books on the market. Instead of being written by a marketing representative obsessed with numbers, my book is from a user’s perspective."

To be clear, I have not read the book, and I am not endorsing it. I’m simply pointing out its existence, and highlighting the fact that the Twitter phenomenon has created such an array of literature.

Last week, a Twitter documentary was announced as well. You can find our interview with its creator Siok Siok tan here.

    Having potential of increasing the presence, both from commercial and personal is really an interesting one. Bringing several years of tweets and observations leads to a real growth. Good one !
