‘Satire is only funny if it’s partially true. This book is hilarious. Need I say more? ... Absolutely recommended reading.’ - Eyes on World Cultures

‘One of the funniest yet politically insightful works I have seen in a while … This little book is also important to show that Twitter is not a new communication tool but a new medium that shapes our way of thinking and expressing.’ - Ece Temelkuran
