The Twitter Diaries by Imogen Lloyd Webber & Georgie Thompson

The story follows the new friendship of @TuesdayFields and @StellaCavill who meet at a party on New Years Eve in New York. Over the next 12 months they share a daily communication using Twitter direct messages. Despite the miles and time zones the two women share contemplation, thoughts and secrets and develop their friendship.
Sadly youngsters will not experience the excitement of a letter from foreign climes complete with an interesting stamp on. The whole pen pal hype was not just writing the letter, but the waiting for the postman to arrive and then the reading and re-reading of the letter, enjoyed befor replying.
I loved the concept of the storyline, which given the social media of today was not a particular surprise. The whole concept of Twitter and the Internet has taken pen pals to a different level, one that is sustainable on throw away sentences.
Disclaimer – I was provided with a free copy of the e-book in exchange for an honest review.
