@Everyword: The Book
Instar Books just released a book version of my Twitter bot @everyword, which tweeted every word in the English language over the course of seven years (2007 to 2014). The book includes the entire run of the bot, with favorite and retweet counts for each word, along with an introduction by me in which I talk about the bot's origins and how running a (modestly) high-profile Twitter account came to affect my life.

The book is available right now only in an electronic edition, but my publisher is working on producing a physical version, which will become available when the electronic version reaches sufficient sales. I'm on tour right now to promote the book—if you're nearby, please come see me talk about the bot in person!

Also: to celebrate the release of the book, I released an @everyword companion bot: @libraryofevery, which enumerates (using the @everyword word list) all possible @everyword parodies and homages.
