  1. Bill

    Book arrived at 5pm; finished reading at 8pm; and, my Twitter site was up and running by 8:30pm. The most productive reading that I have read in years. If you haven’t read it, why not? I am looking forward to reading Ian’s other 30 minute books.

  2. TXDesign

    This is an excellent book for anyone trying to get up and running on Twitter. It is easy to follow, has good examples, and provides step by step help. I am not familiar with this form of social media so it is somewhat overwhelming. This book has made it much easier and given me a good start.

  3. Customer

    Husband is switching roles and jumped into a technology environment where he needs to make his brand on Twitter. Thought this would be a good present Quick, easy read that was very relevant and got him set up and running. Definitely a great quick starter read.

  4. Ron

    Twitter in 30 Minutes introduces the basics to readers who are new to Twitter and largely focuses on using the platform correctly for more experienced users without boring us with statistics and unnecessary details.

    I found it helpful and liked the laser beam approach to Tweeting successfully.
