#Stolen : Twitter To Delete STOLEN Tweets And Jokes

Did you know that some of your tweets which have been stolen from other people’s handle can be deleted ?

It’s now reported that stealing someone’s funny tweet and using it for yourself is nothing new, in fact, passing someone else’s witticism as your own is illegal. As reported by The Verge, a number of tweets have been deleted for copying a joke from Olga Lexell at @runolgarun (who, as of press time, has protected her tweets).


According to Lexell, she had requested to Twitter that her jokes be removed as they are her intellectual property, and users have no right to use her content without permission. Afterwards, Twitter swiftly removed the tweets in question with no further questioning. Lexell also says that this isn’t the first time that Twitter has complied, as she has sent in requests for other tweets to be removed.


I simply explained to Twitter that as a freelance writer I make my living writing jokes (and I use some of my tweets to test out jokes in my other writing). I then explained that as such, the jokes are my intellectual property, and that the users in question did not have my permission to repost them without giving me credit.

Like many other content hosting companies, Twitter is under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and is provided “safe harbor” from copyright claims as long as it doesn’t protect infringing material. However, this “safe harbor” usually pertains to tweets containing links to pirated/stolen/illegally hosted media, not for 140-character quips. Anyone can submit an infringement claim here, which will then be reviewed by staff, and thereafter the offending user has 10 days to submit a counter notice.

By Gamine Girlie
“I joined twitter, mid last year, a friend of mine invited me, at first I was like “what the!!” but I began using it.
For those of you that know about the Twitter phenomenon im sure you’d understand.  But like most web phenomenons, when you think you’ve stumbled upon a very cool exclusive web app, next thing you know, well.. celebs and Wannabes are using it, happened with this face book too.
I joined at a time when people where so hung up on Hi5, next thing i know even pets were joining face book.
Alongside this social networking and notworking apps, there’s been the surge of online dating, from the specific dating sites to social sites to forums to chat ,e.t.c, people are hooking up everywhere, and it was just a matter of time that TwitHookups would become a reality, 
So How Did It start :
He started following me three months after I joined twitter, his one-line biography read, “Music, movies, a Scientist”. it struck me as “somehow” but i decided to follow back, thats the decent thing to do on Twitter, follow back.
Well, one day i made a tweet about how i was tired of watching a particular TV show and he responded, we started a “Twitromance” and then graduated to chats then calls.
To cut the long story short he proposed to me after several dates and we are now happily married with KID.”
Interesting story that was, the next thing you will hear is i met my husband on Whats App?
