"In bed. Nothing on but my onsey, 2 blankets, 1 duvet, bed socks & my favourite quilt. Cosy. Xoxozzzzzzz." It may come as a surprise to some to know that these words were tweeted by Gerry Adams - the president of Sinn Féin.

The prolific tweeter is hoping to spread his Twitter cheer outside of the social media platform however, with the release of a book comprised of his best tweets.

The product description on the Sinn Féin bookshop website describes the "compact book" as "a compilation of tweets selected by the man himself".

It adds that "his tweets range across the political and the personal, the serious and the humorous, often featuring rubber ducks and teddy bears!"

For a taster of what readers can expect, here is a selection of his best tweets from the last seven days.

Obviously some of the tweets are more political in nature than others. Here the Sinn Fein leader politicises a morning fry-up.

And the leader is no slouch when it comes to garnering favourites and retweets. He clearly understands the power of cute animals to boost social media popularity.

The book will be available to order online for £6.88 from 29 January.
