The stress of saying what you want in just 140 characters is a daily struggle for many twitter users.

Even worse, is when someone steals your tweet without giving you any credit.

Twitter is now deleting these "plagiarised tweets" for copyright infringement.

One case of this is a joke posted by freelance writer Olga Lexel, under the username @runolgarun.

She tweeted "Saw someone spill their high end juice cleanse all over the sidewalk and now I know god is on my side."

The tweet then appeared on other people's pages.

Lexel told The Verge that she complained to twitter to have the tweets removed.

So it seems twitter thieves had better watch their back!
