Humblebrag twitter feed available as book
Parks and Recreation writer Harris Wittels' popular Humblebrag twitter account, which effectively retweets the false humility-ridden brags of known personalities, ranging from athletes to actors and beyond, is now available in book form. Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty is a collection of the many tweets that Wittels has been tracking and collecting. Wittels explains that the obvious faux-humility of these tweets "allows the offender to boast his 'achievements' without any sense of shame or guilt." Whether it's a professional athlete complaining they spend too much time on planes, or celebrities upset about the absurd amount of bathrooms in their homes, these brags are a fine example of egoism, no matter how hard the culprit tries to cover it up.
