How to Leave Twitter: My Time as Queen of the Universe and Why This Must Stop

Grace Dent has had the career that every aspiring writer dreams of: a job with Cosmo before even graduating university, traveling the world as a journalist for the Daily Mirror, regular columns for all the top women’s magazines, and dozens of TV hosting stints. Though she has an incredibly successful professional life, Grace has a guilty pleasure that we all share – personal fulfillment via Twitter popularity.

In her new book ‘How to Leave Twitter: My Time as Queen of the Universe and Why This Must Stop”, Dent explores the reasons why highly intelligent people like herself get sucked into the vain, all-consuming world of social networking. She takes a hilarious look at the social climbers who inhabit the Twitter world and her witty opinions on internet terms that we don’t even quite understand (“twanking”? “twitchfork mobs”??) will have you laughing out loud as you read.

If you’re looking for a summer beach read that involves a few more brain cells than the usual romance novel, pick up Dent’s latest release on 21 July. You can follow Grace on twitter here @gracedent – because of course she didn’t leave, none of us can!
