While PRNewser did generate its own screen shot of the fake BP Tweet, the blog “writer” didn’t realize my post’s followers count is less than the number of followers in his post which effectively timestamps my post as the first one written.

This type of creative re-purposing of content by PRNewser is the primary reason why I don’t put my best research and content online.

It too would get stolen.
