Eat Tweet, and other Twitter lit

Maureen Evans brings us Eat Tweet: A Twitter Cookbook, 1,020 recipe gems from the Twitter community’s @cookbook. Evans was the first person to tweet recipes on the social media site Twitter, and currently nearly 60,000 followers are getting daily recipe doses from Evans through @cookbook.

With Twitter comes a 140 character limit per post. What? A recipe that’s only 140 characters long? Yes, and here is a book compiling all those tweets. With only 140 characters for each recipe, you can fit a lot of recipes into one little cookbook, as is the case here. Also great about the word limitation, is that the recipes are quick and easy. The book is complete with a glossary to some of the shortcuts used in the recipes, to ensure that they maintain Twitter’s rules. The book is divided into categories and features recipes for all times of day and types of meals. Basics like sauces and stocks, as well as soups, meats, pastas, drinks, and more.

Fans of the Twitter-side of this book might also enjoy Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books In Twenty Tweets Or Less, featuring laugh out loud tweets from famous literary characters. Or there’s Historical Tweets: The Completely Unabridged and Ridiculously Brief History of the World, where history’s biggest personalities share their innermost thoughts via Twitter. LOL indeed.
