On July 19th 2012 Tao Lin posted (and has since deleted) a tweet that said
"can someone email me all 2169 my tweets as text in word file with the dates, i’ll mail u $30 of shit from my room email@example.com"
I jumped at the opportunity to be a tao lin intern for a little so I spent 10 minutes scrolling to the bottom of tao lin’s twitter profile, highlighted all of his tweets and pasted them into a word document and sent them to tao. When I did this I was in China. Tao replied soon after and said that I was the first person to send him the file and then he asked for my address. I gave him my parents address to send the 30 dollars worth of shit. When I got home from China a month or so later there was a package from tao waiting at my parents house. The package included a shit load of bumper stickers that said like, “I support the war on America by bath salts”, a copy of Megan Boyle’s book and a packet of paper titled “Deleted from April 10 Taiwan Things” Because his upcoming book is titled taipei I figured these were edits (removals) he made, even before he had the name of the book nailed down. I scanned a couple pages and I am posting them here if anyone is interested in these ‘leaked’ pages. I have more pages if anyone is interested in reading more. You can ask me to scan more and I’ll scan more.
