If there's one medium in this world that tugs at the heartstrings, educates, and quietly expands our inner lives in much the same way as thoughtfully crafted longform writing, it would be Twitter. At least, that seems like a fair assumption given the amount of time Brooklyn's literary community (and the book world at large) seems to spend there.

And really, besides being a legitimately useful place for authors, publishers, booksellers, and their audiences to connect, it's also just a pretty solid way to kill time (and an easier one to get away with than, say, dropping everything you're doing to quietly blow 45 minutes reading a book at your desk while your boss looks on, angry and bewildered). As such, we took it upon ourselves to put together a selected crash course, presented in no particular order, of essential Twitter feeds to help you keep tabs of the local (or locally relevant) lit community, whether your interests lean towards readings, jokes about industry controversies, long reads, or creepy vintage book covers. If you can think of a more productive way to spend a work day, we'd very much like to hear it.
