The Wall Street Journal has taken note of the small form:
The literary topic du jour is Twitter, with an onslaught of book deals about the site being made in recent months. For example, former Gawker bloggerÂ Nick Douglas snagged a book deal with HarperCollins on a tome about the wittiest messages written on Twitter, to be calledÂ Twitterwit.New York Times technology columnist David Pogue will write a book calledÂ The World According to Twitter, which will be a communal effort of sorts containing the best answers to humorous questions he posts on the microblogging site.
And Dom Sagolla, the founder ofÂ iPhoneDevCamp and a contributor to the development of the concept of Twitter, has been blogging about writing in short form, and recentlyÂ landed his own book deal on the subject.
Any bets on who will get the next Twitter/blogging book deal? (My money is onTextsFromLastNight.com.)
That’s a good bet.
