Like Pop-Up Video, for Twitter

Dan Sinker's publication of his faux-Rahm Emanuel mayoral quest is slated for release on September 13. If you can't wait that long to read a dated Twitter feed in book form, Simon and Schuster has an excerpt up now:

Some mornings coffee is like standing underneath a tw*t-rainbow while f***ing a thousand puppies in the mouth. 08:22:32 AM

The first, and most graphic, of @MayorEmanuel's many coffee Tweets. Over the course of the feed, @MayorEmanuel would tweet about coffee another 69 times. Some of this was character logic: he's passionate about everything, so why not coffee too? Some of it was to help spread the account around Twitter: people would pass the coffee Tweets around rapid-fire. And part of it was that I really, really like coffee.

Wow. Coffee. That is so interesting. [via]
