Sign of the times…
A freshly released book "Twitter Wit" is a hit at the hip micro-blogging service, which so loved the compendium of clever tweets that it bought copies for everyone in its San Francisco headquarters.
"The tweets are irreverent, inappropriate, geeky, and pretty much hilarious," Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in a message at the firm's website. "If you don't like one, you'll like the next."
Author Nick Douglas got permission to publish a collection of tweets that the book touts as "Brilliance in 140 Characters Or Less."
Tweets in the book include: "The baggage carousel sounds a lot more fun than it really is."
