Here's the set-up for Ritch Gaiti's Tweet!, just $3.99 on Kindle:
Glebe, an unlikely hero, scores big for the little guy as Glebe tweets his way to becoming the voice of the people in a witty tale so unlikely, that it is totally plausible, definitely relevant, and very funny.
A quirky, ex-adman, Glebe teams up with Hartwick, a black homeless gent, to create the consumer revolution that topples once powerful businesses. He just asked people "if you could change one thing, what would that be?" and tweeted his way to changing the world.
And his target included everything from dumb advertising to incessant telephone calls, the economy, the government and everything else that people were once powerless to impact.
Glebe did what you would have done if you had thought of it and were quirky and passionate and wanted to just make a diff.
From the reviewers:
In the age of instantaneous global communication, who doesn't wonder at the implications of a single message having the power to change the world? But what exactly should be changed? Change itself? According to Gaiti, Tweet "...is about change--and the individual's (in)ability to fight back against the large companies and government. It's also about excessive consumerism and how the advertising and marketing companies are infiltrating every part of our lives."--Benhamish Allen
Tweet is a touching story about one man's struggle to find fulfillment in his life. When Glebe finds himself at rock bottom, both professionally and personally, he organically begins a journey toward making a difference in the world. I found myself cheering on Glebe through the book's interesting twists and turns. --KM
couldn't stop laughing! this book is funny and clever beyond possible explanation! love the writing style, love the subject matter, and hope there's more to come from this talented and witty author. --N. Schrier
