TweetBookz Turns Tweets Into Books
A startup is looking to latch onto the popularity of San Francisco-based Twitter, with the launch of a new service to turn Twitter tweets into printed books. According to New York-based TweetBookz, users can create hard or soft cover books with up to 200 of their "most memorable" tweets, one per page. The firm is charging $30.00 for a hard cover book, and $20.00 for a soft cover book. The service--which appears to be appealing to the narcissitic leanings of Twitter users--said users cannot purchase books of other people's tweets, only their own, although it will allow users to send gift cards for other Twitter users to print their own books.
