Twitter co-creator Sagolla offers the first writing guide specifically
dedicated to communicating with the succinctness and clarity that the
Internet age demands. Expressing oneself clearly in short bursts
-particularly within Twitter's 140 character limit - takes special

basics of great short-form writing, including the importance of
communicating with simplicity, honesty, and humor.
