English Synopsis
Gandhi Bookstores (GB) has always found innovative ways of bringing people closer to books. This time, GB, 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 and avatar were created for each of the 13 characters. Each character tweeted adapted lines from the original script, satisfying Twitter´s needs. That's how, day by day and tweet by tweet, the full story was narrated. To enrich the experience, Twitter tools were used, such as Twitpic and Formspring.
