The Picador Book Club (on Twitter)

 How to use Twitter in a new way? Beyond the informal giveaways (“First 10 people to DM me gets a free copy of ____!”), I thought we could try and bring the authors into the discussion with readers and booksellers.

It’s an experiment in progress we’ve simply called the Picador Book Club. There’s a good rundown on the Picador site, which also lists the most recent 25 tweets around each book’s discussion.
