Steve Ladurantaye's real time book review

On the evening of Oct. 26, Globe & Mail ROB media beat reporter Steve Ladurantaye started reading Brian Lilley's CBC Exposed on his e-reader and began Tweeting about it. After one or two posts, he declared that he was going to stop.
But followers immediately weighed in, encouraging Ladurantaye to keep going--which he did, for a couple of hours and 35-plus very entertaining and insightful Tweets (plus diversions into secondary conversations), pulling readers along through the book.

I don't know if this is the first time anybody has ever done this but it is the first time I have watched this being done so it's made this list. It was better than a lot of T.V. (perhaps not CBC; but certainly, if I can offer my own opinion, anything produced so far by Sun Media).
