Today In Twitterverse: Guess Before You Buy

Even though it’s been around for a while, I just found my way to TwitterLit, a site that offers the first sentence from an unidentified book. Provided that the sentence is less than 140 characters, which is Twitter’s size limit for text.
This offering capitalizes on the widespread like of word games and puzzles. Presently, TwitterLit has 2420 followers on Twitter and offers 541 updates, or posts, each one linked to an Amazon page where one can purchase the book in question. The service is a brilliant use of Amazon Associates and Twitter.

    Thanks again!
