Twitter Is Taking Down Tweets That Steal Other People’s Jokes

This post originally appeared on Business Insider.

Twitter has started taking down tweets that copy the same joke that somebody else has already shared, the Verge reports. Olga Lexell, a freelance writer from Los Angeles, spotted that one of her Twitter jokes was being reposted by other accounts without her permission. They didn't retweet her; instead they just copied and pasted her joke. Lexell decided to ask Twitter to take down the tweets, as they were her intellectual property.

Sure...
