Hey, thanks Patch for linking to Facebook! It got my reddit post auto-modded; I'm still not sure if its even accessible yet. Hijacking the competition's Twitter feed for your site's promotion in a way that sabotages their site's promotion; pretty sneaky.

Haha oops. I did post some not-mine stories! You should share these on reddit more often and then we'd know you're doing it. I have a feeling these sites are under promoted in general. Nobody is even doing Furry clickbait parody news (One twitter account was good but only stuck around for a little while), so I will.
