It’s from Bob, Not Twitter

Large news organizations have a problem–they’re large. In this largeness, it’s difficult to make sure everyone understands what the rules are, particularly in the copyright department. If a video or picture goes viral, the news organization would run it and attribute it to YouTube or Twitter without giving credit to the person who actually created the media. They’re attributing it to the platform as if it was a content creator.
