After a much publicized and embarrassing fight between Hachette and Amazon, Hachette today announced they would sell books directly off twitter! Let’s have a parade.

Big news! How many self-published authors and digital book companies have paved the way using http://www.aerbook.com and others to sell their content and books on twitter. http://www.gumshoe.com is great, but it is a great big comedown from wrestling amazon to the ground.

The more I observe, the more I see big publishing taking it’s cues from us on the ground. They fail at huge negotiations and cry in their saucer of milk, then turn to see what the working folk have been up to. We’ve been selling books.

  1. hmm interesting. I’m surprised one of the large publishing companies made this decision. I guess I just expected something bigger, idk
