After best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell was tweeted a photo of Gucci Mane holding his “David And Goliath” book, the two went on to exchange a handful of tweets praising each other.

Upon coming across the photo of Gucci (thanks to a Twitter user who sent it his way), Gladwell declared that it could be the greatest thing that has ever happened to him.

“Gucci Mane, ladies and gentlemen. This might be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me,” Malcolm Gladwell tweeted yesterday (October 23).

Hours after Gladwell sent his tweet about Gucci, who is gearing up for the release of his The Return of East Atlanta Santa album, the Southern rapper joined in on the pleasantries, declaring Gladwell his favorite author, and listing off the books of his he’s read.

“I read blink,outliers, and tipping point you my favorite author,” Gucci Mane tweeted earlier today (October 24).

Among the topics discussed in Malcolm Gladwell’s collection of novels are social behavior, personal success and trends.
