Since the popularization of Twitter, people and companies have been stealing other peoples’ Tweets and using them for profit. This framed Kanye tweet is just one example. My favorite (least favorite) of the reused-Tweet genre is, of course, “Twitter: The Comic,” the book where some guy took some 2012-era Weird Tweets and drew them out, thereby ruining the joke in each and every one, without permission from or payment to the original authors.
As you might expect, there’s a product that bridges the two of these ideas, which is this book where some guy added illustrations to Kanye’s tweets and printed them in a book.
