Twitter Comedian Kelly Oxford Steals Her Own Tweets

Kelly Oxford used to be known for being a Canadian housewife whose Twitter feed you couldn't turn away from. In three years she amassed over half a million dedicated followers. Celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel and Olivia Wilde RT'd her en masse. Then came the script deals. Followed by the movie. And after that, the book deal.

As it turns out, the joke reservoir is starting to dry up. A quick glance at her FavStar—an aggregator of popular tweets—reveals that on numerous occasions, Oxford has plagiarized tweets. Her own.
