Jonny Sun’s alien Twitter persona, Jomny Sun, has a huge following within what he calls “Weird Twitter.” The bot’s deliberately misspelled tweets and lonesome temperament have drawn in hundreds of thousands of followers.

That led to Sun’s first book about the character, Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too.

And now, he’s back — this time partnering up with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Hamilton creator’s new book Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & YouAfter some initial conversations over DM and texts, Sun wound up drawing more than 100 illustrations to accompany Miranda’s inspirational messages.

Jonny Sun grew up Canada and in 2012 moved to the United States to study at Yale School of Architecture (he’s now working on his Ph.D. in urban studies and planning at MIT). The transition from Canada to the U.S. left Sun longing for a sense of home and identity.

Thankfully, with the help of his alter-ego, Sun found a place in the Twitter-verse “It’s just like a place that I live and I get to be part of this online big room that we’re all in,” he says.

For the new project with Miranda, Sun says it felt surreal turning an idea that grew out of a Twitter chat idea into something concrete. “I think the meaning of it changes and shifts when it’s printed and when it’s bound and when it’s in this physical book to hold on to.”

Looking forward, Sun is working on a three-book deal that will include a follow-up to his first book, a book of essays, and another illustrated work featuring Tiny Care Bot, a Twitter character he created that reminds people to engage in self-care.
