"Twitter writer" Kelly Oxford just sold a TV comedy. Hope it's more original than her past stuff?

Here's hoping Warner Brothers TV and Fox are in for a rough ride—as someone who witnessed and worked directly on Oxford's disastrous attempt at developing a 'tiger mom' sitcom with NBC, I know Oxford was prone to being very late to notes calls with the studio and network (and sometimes missing them entirely), and turning in incredibly sub-par drafts lacking in jokes.
Add in the fact that Oxford is known for reusing her own material because she can't think of anything else original (and no, Twitter is not standup, so please don't use the argument that standup comedians reuse sets all the time), there's a good chance her 32 page script will just be one page of material, with 33 callbacks to the first few jokes.
