WTF is wrong with people... This super viral thread is word-for-word plagiarism of a two decade old essay (that's mostly been debunked:…)

Scholars with large followings are sharing this

Do some due diligence! Share Twitter threads based on real research
If you want to share a fun thread based on real scholarly research, share this one on my PhD research into ancient chickens... it's fun, it has pictures of chickens, and it's based on hours and hours of actual research

Or if you just want something silly, but still based on hours and hours of actual research for my honors thesis. Try this thread on ancient use of marijuana. Bonus, it's got some fun gifs

@DineshDSouza I wrote a book detailing southern Dems support for segregation and repeatedly noted that obvious fact on Twitter.

You, meanwhile, invented a fake Dixiecrat senator and implied that politicians who died in the 1940s and 1950s were still Democrats in the 1960s. That's #FakeHistory
