Alastair Campbell: A Twitter interview with Madame Arcati in (approx) 140 characters

Alastair Campbell tweeted this morning: 'Vol 3 of my diaries Power and Responsibility published today. Trying out new and interesting strategy - not doing media, off to Burnley.'

So I tweeted back: 'How would you describe your new strategy so I can quote you in blog? 140 characters... '

His Twitter interview in full without Hari-esque additions or refinements:

'Extracts major bestseller. Full vols more historic record. Reviews, word of mouth and ongoing 'normal' media engagement.'

And that's it. Perfect. I hope Madame Arcati counts as a 'normal media engagement.'

It is perfect. Beats 2000 words of exposition.
