Twitter Asserting Copyright to Remove Stolen Jokes
Twitter is asserting copyright to delete stolen jokes. Um… “Let’s face it: coming up with a grade-A tweet isn’t easy. That’s why some people just copy good tweets from other people and act like they came up with the 140-character witticism on their own. This has been going on since the beginning of Twitter. It now appears Twitter is using its legal authority to crack down on these tweet-stealers. A number of tweets have been deleted on copyright grounds for apparently stealing a bad joke.” Because Twitter has no other issues with content and user interaction that it should consider a higher priority. Nope nope nope.
