In just a few short months, the 140-character micro-blogging phemen kwn as Twitter has claimed much of what little discretionary time journalist Roland Hedley had left. This volume combines dozens of Doonesbury's Twitter strips with 500 actual tweets posted by the intrepid Hedley as he roams the globe on assignment. A sampling of these posts was recently featured in The New Yorker, and it's a given that the cluelessly self-obsessed Hedley will relentlessly over-promote the book to the thousands of readers who follow him.
