Generally, you might see special birthday posts about stylish presents and desires that have been generously fulfilled on one’s special day. And, even though I did receive wonderful gifts and tasteful pieces (which I’ll be wearing later) on my own special day, I thought I would do a different post. Here's a fun little gift that I received from my sister, the Lines For All Occasions: Tweets & Status Updates book.
Initially, it was supposed to be one of my entertaining introductory gifts—you know, those items that are in a type of grab bag that’s not to be taken too seriously. Upon opening the most important bag of festive goodies, I just couldn’t help but love this pocket-sized book!
If you’re on Twitter or Facebook, then you will understand. The book caters to the art enthusiast, gastronome, techie, bookworm, and many others! It has lines and Tweets that are both, full of vigour and amusement. There’s even cheeky lines from celebrities’ status updates to comical Tweets from the deceased (think, Jane Austen or Salvador Dali living in the twenty-first century and being on Twitter).
The book is a sheer hilarious and clever introduction to understanding how powerful social media is, namely Twitter. Brief tweeted installments in the book feature topics about, oversharing (ahem, #TMI), ghost Tweets, gossip and rebuttals, and Twitter etiquette, amongst many others. However, there’s also excerpts with a bit more substance—some offering ways to promote yourself properly online, or rather what to avoid.
Other famous communiqués provided are examples to learn from … and then there’s the little fact tokens of enlightenment. Be it your “how-to” guide to crafting your next Tweet or witticisms to make a note of for the next time you see a friend’s status update, the book indeed is one to remember for stocking filling season!
I’ve assembled numerous quotes and status updates that were some of my favourites, of course there were far more to enjoy with a quiet chuckle here, or a shaking of the head there. But, listen, if you have time to spare this would definitely be an alternative way to rest your head from the crosswords or Sudoku puzzles.
@ClaudeMonet What a terrible waste of time! #firstimpression
