NYT Columnist David Pogue to Publish Twitter Book

pogue23.gifNew York Times technology columnist David Pogue is using his 200,000 Twitter followers to write a new book.

Over the last few weeks, the columnist has posed a series of questions to his readers over Twitter–asking for quick puns, humorous photo captions, and parental advice. Impressed by the results, he decided to keep asking questions until he had enough answers to fill a new book.

Here’s more from the post: “‘The World According to Twitter’ will be a charming, irresistible, extremely hilarious little book, a book that couldn’t be written in any other way. If I publish one of your tweets, I’ll send you a free copy of the book, inscribed to you personally. I’ll also credit your response in the book, using your Twitter name.” (Via Rachel Sklar)
