I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy last week’s Peanutwitter post. Twitter suspended the original Peanutwitter account due to legal threats received from Peanuts Worldwide, LLC (via Iconix Brand Group, Inc.). While Twitter and WordPress are separate platforms, and while many (myself included) consider Peanutwitter to be the type of parody that falls under Fair Use, I do not want to see this page suspended in kind. So, to preemptively protect my behind, I deleted the post.

For what it’s worth, during the week it had been up, my post had become the #6 Google search result for “Peanutwitter”.
