Fake Rahm Emanuel Tweeter Gets Book Deal

The man who became a blogosphere phenomenon by mimicking Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel on Twitter is about to become a published author.

Columbia College assistant journalism professor Dan Sinker’s tweets are being turned into a book. Sinker started the @MayorEmanuel account just as Emanuel launched his bid for mayor last year and became an overnight hit. Scribner is publishing the book, which will include the entire stream of tweets from campaign launch to win and contextual information when necessary. It’s due for release sometime this summer.
