Although “iOS 7 Without the Eye” was released in September, “Tweeting Blind” is actually the first tech-related book I wrote. It’s been a much bigger project, and I’m proud that it’s available today in a wide range of formats through the Mosen Consulting website and the National Braille Press.
About the Book
“Tweeting Blind” is my comprehensive look at the world of Twitter from a blindness perspective. There’s something in “Tweeting Blind” for everyone, whether you’ve yet to get yourself a Twitter account, or you’re a power user looking for advanced tips and tricks. With “Tweeting Blind” to hand, you have the much-requested reference guide that makes sense of Twitter.
“Tweeting Blind” begins by explaining what Twitter is, and why you might like to become a part of it. It then guides you step by step through the sign-up process on a range of platforms.
Twitter is a highly customisable social network. “Tweeting Blind” takes you through the ways for you to configure Twitter to your liking, including a discussion about whether protecting your Twitter updates is the right choice for you.
To be comfortable and effective on Twitter, it’s helpful to understand its terminology and etiquette. There’s an entire chapter explaining what all that Twitter jargon means, and how to conduct yourself in a way that helps you fit in.
Did you know Twitter offers a powerful interface useable entirely by text message? That means even if you don’t have the latest smartphone, you can still be a Twitter power user on the go. “Tweeting Blind” devotes a chapter to showing you how to make the most of this feature, whether it’s your primary means of interacting with Twitter, or for use to receive updates instantly from people and organisations important to you.
The remainder of “Tweeting Blind” looks at Twitter on a range of platforms. You’ll find chapters on using Twitter via the Web, with Windows clients, the Mac, iOS and Android. A wide range of clients is discussed, helping you choose the one that’s best for you on each platform, and providing basic operating instructions.
The book is written in an easy-to-follow, conversational style, with a little humour in the mix. The book succeeds in making the process of learning about Twitter both informative and fun.
Add “Tweeting Blind” to your arsenal of reference tools today.
