    You have a good idea about twitter, but consider these possibilities since scraping someone's content isn't really a good idea.

    1. No retweets.
    2. No one has saved your tweet as their favorite.
    3. No one has used it over time in their name.
    4. The content has not gone viral in the past for right or wrong reasons.

    Simple enough, just run a plagiarism check, a safer option always. However, there's always something that might miss.
