Ebook That Includes Twitter Hashtags

#Sweet! An Ebook That Includes Twitter Hashtags

Next month, an ebook titled Here on Earth, a Natural History of the Planet will hit eshelves with one very interesting addition: Twitter hashtags. The book connects directly with Twitter, allowing users to tweet as they're reading and tagging each tweet with the #hereonearth hashtag, encouraging real-time conversations between readers. The book also includes note-taking functionality with the ability to email yourself notes, perfect for educational reading.

While I support this, I do think that it has its place in academic or classic literature — not popular fiction and certainly not extremely popular fiction. Why? Ask any Harry Potter fan! I may be admitting too much here, but when book seven of the wildly popular series was released to bookstores, I raced to get a copy. Avoiding Facebook and Twitter was hard enough, and I'm a fast reader! If a book was spoiled via Twitter (however unintentionally) I'd be crushed.

The bottom line: the capability is awesome, just please use it responsibly!
