Apr10 Twitter, The Book

I’ve signed a deal with Penguin/Portfolio to write a book about Twitter. I’ll keep this short as I don’t want to spoil the ending. The book will chronicle the story of Twitter, from its inception to today, along with the business, societal and human aspects of the company.

Here is the brief announcement by Penguin:

New York Times columnist and reporter Nick Bilton’s untitled book on the rise of Twitter, to Niki Papadopoulos at Portfolio, at auction, for publication in 2013.

I’ve been covering Twitter for The New York Times for the past several years, often expressing the importance of the service in public debates with The Times former executive editor and The New Yorker.

Stay tuned for more.
