Book Review: Hatching Twitter
I’m not an early Twitter adopter but I love using it since day one. It is an fast and easy way to skim through the news of the day, get a few random tips and be notified by new articles or blog posts. I still use RSS feeds as they are not ephemeral like Twitter feed therefore more reliable to get the latest news but Twitter is a great companion to that source now.
I heard about this book in a podcast a few days ago and Twitter being my favourite “social network” I immediately dug in. One funny thing is it makes you think about how fast things go in the Internet age. The book reads like a history of a company which, in earth years, was founded 7 years ago. Obviously we know the plot and ending of the book so there is nothing exciting about it maybe. But the storytelling is very good and riveting. My intention was to spare 2 pomodoros a day but most days I found myself extending it to 3 or 4. Long story short, it’s a very well written book about one of most fascinating tech companies of the day.
