Three years ago, columnist and author Grace Dent joined new social networking site Twitter, mainly as a place to dump her surplus jokes, rant about garbage TV, and post exclusive JPEGs of her hot new toenail varnish. But as every "Re-tweet" and "Follow Friday" saw her audience figures soar by tens of thousands, Dent found herself centre stage in an all-consuming highly addictive social network revolution. One where the gags, gossip, scandal, and backstabbing literally never stop. Here Dent takes a hilarious, acerbic look at what’s really going on in Twitterworld: Who's actually tweeting, who’s really reading your tweets, and what’s behind the 140 character lies they tell. She looks at the highs and grotty lows of twitter addiction; the shameless social climbers; the friends you'll make and the ones you can't get bloody rid of; the barefaced bragging; the shameful celeb-stalking; and the truth about "twanking", twitter cliques, angry "twitchfork mobs", and dealing with trolls. 1.

Grace Kinsella is social. But she likes the anonymity of being a blue bird on Twitter, where she can shoot arrows of pithy filth at her favorite movie star. Virtual love is right up her alley. Vaughn Asher is dominant. But only in private. A former child actor turned mega-movie action hero, Vaughn knows how to navigate a world filled with paparazzi, avoid the tabloids, and have his fun, too. Worlds collide on Saint Thomas when Grace comes face to face with the muse who has propelled her into dirty-tweeting stardom online. And he's got an offer she can't refuse. After all, how many people get a chance to live out their sexual fantasies with the man of their dreams? Too bad the man of her dreams turns out to be a #dick. Social is a three-book bundle consisting of Follow, Like, and Block from the best-selling Social Media series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Kamish, Autumn Clark.

Political Risk , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 514min

Political risk - the probability that a political action could significantly affect an organisation - is changing fast, and it's more widespread than ever before. In the past, the chief concern used to be whether a foreign dictator would nationalise the country's oil industry or impose onerous new regulations. Today, political risk stems from a widening array of political agents, from Twitter users and terrorists to local officials, transnational activists, hackers and insurgents. What's more, the very institutions and laws that are supposed to reduce uncertainty and risk often increase it instead. This means that in today's globalised world there are no 'safe' bets. Political risk affects companies and organisations of all sizes, operating everywhere from London to Lahore, even if they don't know it. Political Risk investigates and analyses this shifting landscape, suggests what businesses can do to navigate it, and explains how all of us can better understand and deal with these rapidly changing geopolitical dynamics. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grace Angela Henry. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/001807/bk_orio_001807_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
