@MayorEmanuel Gets A Book Deal

@MayorEmanuel -- the profanity-laced Twitter account that lampooned Rahm Emanuel's Chicago mayoral campaign -- is going long-form: In an interview with The Huffington Post, Chicago's Columbia College professor Dan Sinker revealed his tweets will be published in a book this summer.

"It's kind of overwhelming but exciting," Sinker told HuffPo.

The book will include the entire Twitter stream, with added context where necessary, Sinker said, to explain the "minutiae" of Chicago politics.

"In addition, there will be an extensive section that's the "story of the story"--think of that as a commentary track to the making of @MayorEmanuel," Sinker said.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone -- who Sinker met at Columbia College in 2009 -- will write the book's forward. Sinker met Mayor-elect Emanuel earlier this month. The book's exact release date has yet to be announced.
