Scrubbing Other People’s Tweets; Then Retweeting As Your Own

June 12, 2010

I wonder how often a Twitter user creates a Tweet that gets grabbed by another Twitter account and then gets retweeted as its own?

I noticed this happened with my one of my Tweets last week.

The tweet at the bottom of the following screen shot contains my headline with the poster’s Bit.ly link – not mine – to the story I wrote on my blog.

My Tweet Scrubbed; Retweeted

My Tweet Scrubbed; Retweeted

While my blog would get the benefit of any traffic this Tweet sent, the grab a tweet, scrub and retweet model seems dubious at best.
