The official site of "The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of @MayorEmanuel"

The book features the feed, extensively annotated, plus an extensive epilogue about the story, and a foreword by Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. Added bonus: you don't have to scroll so much.

Louder Than a Bomb at the @MayorEmanuel Book Party

One of the greatest unexpected outcomes of the whole @MayorEmanuel saga this past spring was getting to give over $12,000 of other people's money to the incredible youth writing organization, Young Chicago Authors. When thinking up who I'd like to have at the @MayorEmanuel book party, they were the first ones on my list--specifically their poetry arm, Louder Than a Bomb. LTAB has created a city-wide (regional now) poetry competition for high school students that is truly one of the greatest cultural institutions in Chicago. Watch the four performances from the Hideout stage and you'll see why:
