Novelty @SkidmoreBear Twitter Account Takes Page From Jonah Lehrer’s Book And Self-Plagiarizes

Written by Staff Writer on August 20th, 2012

the weird joke’s first appearance was met with enthusiasm from at least two retweet happy followers

The weird joke’s second appearance

It seems that everyone’s favorite Saratoga based novelty twitter account has fallen prey to the same editorial pressures and hubris that took down New Yorker staff writer Jonah Lehrer.  Timestamps on the above tweets show that the bear reused the same weird joke about squirrels and garbage on two separate occasions.

The twitter community is obviously in shock but as of press time the Bear’s editorial management have not publicly addressed the alleged self-plagiarism.

For reference, Skidmore’s Plagiarism and Documentation policy can be reviewed here.
