16 Great Tweets That Were Stolen This Week

Nine out of ten doctors recommend unfollowing a parody account today.

Posted on August 25, 2017, at 4:57 p.m. ET

People steal tweets. They've been doing it since Twitter was a thing. Every week, there are dozens of accounts that recycle other people's viral tweets so they can build their own brand and make money.


As these accounts grow, they can organize sponsored ads — relying entirely on the humor and thoughts of others — which they nestle in between recycled memes, text posts, and tweets.

Recently, people have started to strike back against these accounts. For example, the Twitter account Kale Salad retweets popular tweets that have been stolen.

So, as we have been doing every week, here are some of the best tweets that got stolen in the past seven days – so you can retweet them straight from the source.
