We’ve been writing a lot recently about how The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi is a master takist, but he just keeps on surprising us.
A few nights ago I was reading through his Twitter feed (as I do before I fall asleep every night), and I noticed something remarkable — Carchidi just beats the living hell out of Courier-Post writer Dave Isaac in the #brand department.
Now, most people know that the way to consistently assert #brand dominance is via the “manual retweet,” but in The Hot Takery’s opinion, that still gives too much credit to the original writer. Enter Carchidi, who has made it a habit to straight up lift Isaac’s tweets with the absolute bare minimum attribution possible — quotes.
But, to be fair, Isaac should be grateful that a master takist like Carchidi leaves his handle in the tweet — it’s an honor, kind of.
So without further ado, we give you the 46 best times this has happened:
*Editor’s note: None of these tweets are particularly interesting. Also, we excluded all the times when Carchidi quoted Isaac and added an extra (albeit asinine) observation — there’s a ton of those too.*
