Teju Cole's Remix of Lagos News
Speaking of Twitter, Teju Cole, author of the previously-excerpted excellent read Open City, has had a twitter account, @TejuCole, for a while, but only in the last few weeks has he started to light it up with Haiku-remixes of headlines and stories from Lagos's newspapers. Totally brilliant and unique. Its impossible to chose a favorite. I just wonder how much of the clever phrasing and irony is from the original editorial team, or Cole's polishing.
