I'm beginning to learn how to send the same tweet to my followers, but have not yet found out how to do several other tasks and am hoping your book will help in those areas. Several people have made requests to follow me yet when I have pressed "accept" their names have not appeared on my list of followers. Finally, I'm working on my lists now and do not yet know whether your book has been helpful enough in that area.
I hope that this frank critique is useful.
Twitter for Dummies follows the usual conventions used in the "for Dummies" series including icons that point out helpful information, highlights of useful facts and emphasis on any and all areas that need special note. What makes the series in general and this book in particular helpful is the breadth of material covered will both surely satisfy the Twitter beginner and give Twitter pros useful and effective ideas to heighten their Twitter experience.
Particularly helpful for me was the Part of Tens section near the back of the book that highlights ten twitter tools, ten useful Twitter-based services and ten cool ways to use Twitter. The glossary is also key in defining some Twitter lingo that the casual user may not understand. Also, throughout the book are interesting links and resources that will make the Twitter experience that much more fun and enjoyable for the beginner, be they private individuals or someone looking to introduce their company or business to Twitter.
Like all the "for Dummies" books I have read I highly recommend this book for those looking to make the plunge into the exciting world of Twitter.
