There’s been a number of books published on the topic since Groundswell first came out. Books written by social media people…that were not written with the help of community. That do not have ongoing communities to discuss the book, well free ones at least. It seems the biggest badge of honor for a social media person to receive is the opportunity to participate in old media. Quite comical really.
About three years ago I was invited to participate in Don Tapscott’s Growing Up Digital book. There were discussion groups created where a number of us talked about the trends and concepts Don was writing about. In fact, I still connect with some of the people that were in those chat rooms. A book about the digital age, developed and enhanced through digital channels. Perfect.
Keeping in that tradition I came across this book on Twitter. Yawnn…NO! It’s a book written about Twitter by the Twitter community. Masterminded by Justin McCullough (@mccjustin) and complete with multiple writers, multiple view points. YES! This is new way of doing old media.

Thanks Laura (@pistachio) for being a champion of the Twitter community and showing me this gem of an ebook.
