Is Stealing Tweets Okay?

Play episode

After Kevin and Matt discuss a landmark scientific discovery, they talk about the Crime of the Century: a YouTuber stole one of Matt’s Spice Girls tweets and brought it to the masses. It’s insignificant, but it raises important questions about how creatives work online and what it really means to be original.

When we’re all influenced by our creative heroes, and we’re all subject to our brain’s amazing ability to combine (and forget), can we even make a truly original song? Write an original article? Film an original YouTube video?

Stealing art has been around as long as art itself — and that might not be a bad thing.

… then it’s Pokemon, favorite animals, JoJo Siwa’s Bizarre Adventure, and the greatest compliment Kevin’s ever received.
