Was Tupac at Coachella a hologram or…?; Update: Tupac’s hologram now has Twitter account

Last night, a realistic-looking Tupac hologram performed at the Coachella Music Festival. You can read our full report on Twitter reaction to Coachella last night here; here’s a video of the hologram in action:
