Twitter isn’t just for breaking news and celebrity stalking—it’s also a goldmine of the funniest comedy online. Jokes? People tell jokes on Twitter? YES, they do. And they are hilarious! “The perfect book for parents who want — NEED — to laugh, but don’t have time to sit down and read a daunting book. Grab it, head to the bathroom and lock the door until they find you!” —Jill Smokler, aka Scary Mommy
Meet the guests:
The daughter of famed New Yorker cartoonist Jack Ziegler, Jessica divides her time between coming up with book ideas on insanely tight timelines, directing social web design for VestorLogic and Trail Sherpa and sketching out science-y principles on her drawing tablet for ScienceofParenthood.com. Jessica is also the creator and publisher of StoryTots, a series of customizable children’s books. She lives in Denver.
If anyone’s looking for Kate Hall, check Twitter first. That’s where you’ll usually find her. She loves Twitter so much that she created the blog, Hall of Tweets, devoted entirely to — you guessed it! — Twitter.
