omg just tell me if i'm good or not :'''')
@carly I SAW THAT OMG
Did you see the astonishing book title dust up
@lassarina ...i am not sure if i heard about the book title thing, go on
@carly so a debut author well received this year threw a public fit and sent their social media followers after another author, with 200+ NYT best sellers to their name, on the grounds of the latter author having plagiarized a book title from the debut author
@lassarina oh YIKES, what were the titles in question?
the poetry thing is so wild, apparently this has been going on for ages https://www.vulture.com/2018/12/poetry-twitter-erupts-over-plagiarist-ailey-otoole.html
@carly I’ll DM since the accused author is being v publicly gracious and I respect that
@lassarina hahaha I heard about this, yikes that’s embarrassing
@isa I mean how do you even. Get there. Yikes.
@lassarina with a whole lot more arrogance and self-assuredness than I have, in any case
