English Synopsis
Gandhi Bookstores took advantage of social networks to create Tweetbooks: Read a complete book following its characters through your Twitter timeline. The first book: The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint–Exupéry. A Twitter account were created for each of the 13 characters. Each character tweeted adapted lines from the original script, satisfying Twitter´s needs, such as 140 character sentences, use of emoticons, and dialogue replies. A total of 554 tweets were written. That's how, day by day and tweet by tweet, the full story was narrated. To enrich the experience, Twitter also tools were used, such as Twitpic and Formspring.

The Print Ad titled TWEETBOOKS was done by Ogilvy & Mather Mexico advertising agency for Gandhi Bookstores in Mexico. It was released in Feb 2010.
