Per the New York Times:
Stave off despair by tweeting like Werner Herzog.
If you’re like me, you love Werner Herzog.
And if you’re like me, you love @WernerTwertzog even more!
See, @WernerTwertzog tweets like Werner Herzog would tweet if he tweeted. He tweets things like: “It is important for fitted sheets to slip off the mattress to make us despair of ever finding true rest in this life.”

Or: “Dear America: You are waking up, as Germany once did, to the awareness that 1/3 of your people would kill another 1/3, while 1/3 watches.”
