Wittiest Tweets

Ever wonder how awesome it is to have a book about Twitter’s wittiest messages and updates? Well I think its great for a Twitter user like me to have a copy. Harper Collins is publishing a book, which will hit your favorite book shops on October 6, 2009. The book is entitled Twitter Wit compiled and edited by a freelance author in San Francisco and Twitter user Nick Douglas. Though Twitter Wit is not affiliated with Twitter Inc., a Twitter co creator Biz Stone is also helping for the book.

Just a month after announcing a restructuring that led to layoffs and the shuttering of an entire division, HarperCollins Publishers hopes to jazz up its book lists by opening a new imprint.

This fall the company will publish 21 new hardcover and paperback original titles under the It Books imprint, focusing on pop culture, sports, style and content derived from the Internet, like a planned collection of Twitter posts called “Twitter Wit.”

The imprint will be led by Carrie Kania, who is currently publisher of Harper Collins’s paperback unit, Harper Perennial. Read More.
