The Maine's John O'Callaghan undoubtedly has one of the best Twitter accounts we've ever seen.
Whether you want to get his philosophical genius embroidered on a T-shirt or reblogged as a beautiful edit on Tumblr, we just can't get enough of his tweets of sheer inspirational wisdom.
So thank goodness all of our dreams are coming true: O'Callaghan is releasing a book of 365 of his favorite tweets to date for us to chew on.
“For the last eight 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,” O'Callaghan writes. “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 stick with it.
“So, chew on, and I guess I will have to keep tweeting until I die.”
Yes, yes, please do.
Funny how if you simply turn your back to the crowd you’ll stand out. 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 stick 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. So, chew on, and I guess I will have to keep tweeting until I die. Sincerely, Your Favorite 12 Characters, thefifthjohn LINK IN BIO BB. #8123 #johntheghost #athoughtaday #warmmilk
