Shelve Under MayorEmanuel, @?

If you like reading words on pages but feel that the sentences in books are just too danged long, here's yet another chance to read your favorite 140-character strings in ink. The New York Times reports that Dan Sinker, the Columbia College professor revealed to be the fake Twitter Rahm Emanuel, will soon see his name on a book. Scribner has acquired the rights to publish a book compiling his colorful tweets, annotating them (for people who know nothing about Chicago but would still read this book, I guess?), and including Sinker's first person account of the charade. The book should be available later this year, just in time everyone to be over it already.
