Product description

From the Inside Flap

“Whether you tweet, text, or yammer, Read Between the Lines will fast-forward your ability to communicate in the new world. I thought I was an early pioneer in texting. By reading RBTL, I learned more in thirty minutes than I had in five years of finger typing. More importantly, I learned how to look cool to my children. You need to get to the point, be clever, and figure out how to take advantage of the limited space (characters) provided by services like Twitter. The new world is here now, and you better get hip or get deleted.” Peter H. Jackson Silicon Valley CEO & Director “My doctoral research shows that there is much more to texting than abbreviations and phonetic spelling: Texting is a creative, expressive, and practical outlet for a surprising range of uses. In short, texting deserving much better press than it usually gets! It's great to see a book like Read Between the Lines address texting in such an entertaining and informative way.” Dr. Caroline Tagg, PhD.First person to receive a PhD in texting, Birmingham University, U.K.“We believe that public safety must be prepared for and utilize technology that is available today and in the future. Cell phones and text messaging have become a mainstay in our society; thus public safety must adapt to this new avenue of communication. Because we must reach out to all of our citizens, text messaging opens many doors. We are very proud of our small role in becoming the first in the nation to provide this service to the citizens of Black Hawk County, Iowa.” Thomas Jennings Chief of Police, Waterloo, Iowa.First U.S. County to implement 911 texting services “I like the flexibility texting offers. I can ask a question as I go along in a class and get students to respond quickly and en masse. All I need to have is the number they text to, and I don't need pre-prepared Power Point slides with the question and a choice of answers.” Dr. Kevin Linch, PhD.Pioneer of lecture texting in a university setting, Teaching Fellow, School of History, University of Leeds
