At first I thought, "that's nuts." Then I thought, "well, if you consider tweets to be creative works like books and songs, it makes a certain sense." Then I concluded that that just shows how nuts our intellectual property system has become. And of course that nobody cares what a bunch of linguists think about our intellectual property system.
BTW, did everyone catch list member Patrick Juola in the news for helping identify J.K. Rowling as the author of /The Cuckoo's Calling/?
