    Makes me wish I had thought of this idea. ... They now have an agent and a possible book deal?!
    Good for them and I do mean that.

    Agree. But I swear this would be the only book I'd read out of the hundreds likely in the coming years that are nothing but compiled Twitter posts.

    Best use of Twitter I've seen to date. Wish I thought of it too.
