Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Brooklyn writer Kyle Ayers says he was on his apartment rooftop when he witnessed a breakup. A man and woman were fighting so he live-tweeted their words. And we now re-enact, cleaned up versions of key lines.

INSKEEP: Your roommates are jerks.

INSKEEP: Calling people immature is immature.

MONTAGNE: I guess I'm the only one who doesn't realize how awesome you are.

INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
