Paulo Coelho is a Brazillian author best known for his acclaimed novel
The Alchemist, one of the best-selling books in history. Snopp Dogg is a living rap institution with what might mildly be called a penchant
for marijuana. What do they have in common? Twitter:

narcotics; the author dropped out of law school in the 1960s and
traveled the globe, dabbling with contemporary drug culture. But
what the prolific 63-year-old author is doing following Snopp Dogg's
reefer-addled tweets is anyone's guess.
