Editor’s Note: This is somewhat modified from Dan’s original version. Since social media consulting is my other hat, I tweaked it a bit to add a bit more Twitter-centric style. The essence is all his, however. Enjoy!
What would the original Christmas have been like if Twitter had existed? Here’s what we at TeleRead think it might have looked like.
