Synopsis

What if Twitter had always been part of our lives...? Who would say what during wartime? What would Jesus Tweet? And how would history's most indecent of scandals have played out on our computer screens? Kelvin MacKenzie and Chas Newkey-Burden take a 140-character romp through history in this hilarious book. From dinosaurs to Diana, the Magna Carta to phone-hacking, including 'Famous Last Tweets', hysterical hash-tags and salacious 'Follow Fridays', here is the story of the world told via 140 characters or less. The Ten Commandments @Moses Totally bored on Mount Sinai. Anyone got any suggestions? 12.34pm, 1301BC @TheBigGuy @Moses Have no other gods, no idols, don't blaspheme, keep sabbath, honour your parents, no killing, adultery, theft, lies, or envy. 12.35pm, 1301BC @Moses @TheBigGuy I'm, like, OMG. Will follow you back! 12.36, 1301BC
