    What are these tweets all about?

    Paul Clark@cyclonereport

    9:33am Copy and paste copyright work from one web site to another with absolutely zero respect for the intellectual property of others. #Wannabes

    9:39am Come to work this morn and find the copyright work of @ChrisMWilliams copied and pasted onto my site. NO! You can't do that. Engage ur brain

    9:43am Just because it's on your comp screen doesn't make it yours. Think about whatever you "make" in your work. Can I just come take it for free?

    9:44am Flippin' wannabes are killing pro communication and journalism. Take everything as their own and use ignorance of laws and ethics as defense

    Sounds like someone used some of CW's work and put it on his site? Or he did it and this is his out?

    I'd start to worry about him if he posts CW's material on his site and then goes on a rant about "flippin wannabes" killing pro journalism. One Paul personality is enough, no need for 2 of them with a grudge against each other.

    I get there will be issues and problems between competitors, but seems a bit unprofessional to rant publicly like that.

    I think this is the big issue that set him off:

    Paul Clark ‏ @cyclonereport
    Get on twitter and see retweet of my teaser post from yesterday, with info added from BEHIND Rivals pay wall. NO! Diff between wannabe & pro
    I've never been on CR but if that happened that's not cool.

    Re: What are these tweets all about?

    What info (in general terms) is there at pay sites that we can't get here? Or is it just getting the info a bit sooner than announced.

    You're right. He's just trying to justify his brand's existence. And at the speed at which information moves now he's realizing his product is becoming extinct.

    Re: What are these tweets all about?

    Someone posted stuff from here, from Chris, rather than just a link. That upsets him cuz Chris is taking the time to write the articles for people here and create traffic for the site and someone ganked it and pasted it over there. To him it is just as bad if someone did it to him. So respect for Paul and CW.

    From what I gather it's just a time delay.
