It’s a Twitter account set up to pump out the entirety of Herman Melville’s
mediocre classic novel, one tweet at a time.
How long will that take?
About three years.
Well, we analyzed the marketplace and realized that this was a niche that hadn’t yet been filled. That was a light bulb moment, you know, like wow. In fact, I’m considering including an entire chapter about that one moment in my memoirs, it was that epic.
How’d you get the text for this?
We had interns working around the clock, typing it in.
Is there a charge to read the tweets?
Not at this time, but we are working with our finance team to figure out the best way of monetizing this project.
Did you ever read Moby Dick yourself?

Editor’s Note: It’s broken again. Damn whale.
