What is the best love song ever? How do I break up with someone? How can I find a date?

With questions of such profound romanticism, only one name springs to mind: Lemony Snicket.

OK, so maybe not, but if you want an entertaining and snarky response, mostly likely referring to martinis, then Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, is your man.

Handler, better known as the author A Series Of Unfortunate Events Lemony Snicket, took over our Twitter feed for three hours today, giving 140 character-long advice to lovers everywhere. And as it turned out, this was his first experience of the micro-blogging platform.

This all happened because of his latest book, "Why We Broke Up", a beautifully illustrated (by Maira Kalman) novel in the form of a break-up note from a teenage girl to her former boyfriend.

You can read the complete script of the questions you dared to ask, and the answers he relished giving, below. Which is your favorite?
