    John O’Callaghan of The Maine is releasing a book full of his tweets:


    For the last 8 or so years I have committed (more or less) to “tweeting” once a day, however long and mysterious or short and sarcastic it may be. I don’t claim to possess the secret of life or the trick to being happy or the migratory patterns of the robin, I just have a brain and some thoughts, two thumbs and a twitter so I decided to just kinda stuck with it. In this book, I’ve compiled 365 of my favorite tweets to date (that’s a full year for those of you who believe in that sort of thing) for you to chew on.

    You can also get the book for free online at twitter.com

    (I'm sure there's more to the actual book though but when you get an underhand pitch you have to swing)

    Ugh. I'm really feeling my age, because, while I'm sure many of his younger fans will find this very appealing, I find it profoundly embarrassing.

    Man. I love The Maine, but if this is where we're at in the literary world I should really collect my spiciest takes and release a book.

    We are very overdue for a new Revolution On Canvas.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Seems to be a bit self-important/masturbatory.

    At the end of the day, if their super-fans are buying this, and the band makes a healthy profit, who am I to judge?

    Enjoy their music but man you gotta feel pretty self important to try to sell a book of your own tweets.

    During my AP staff days, I made an April Fool's post about John releasing a book of short poems based on his social media updates, so this is funny to me.
