So, if a "celeb" writes a tweet, then Twitter gets paid a royalty for it, do you really think the celeb won't want a cut of that? And what news organization in their right mind will agree to pay such a royalty? What about "fair use"?

The whole notion is ridiculous. Imagine if, in reverse, a few billon Twitter users decided to tweet quotes from what we've all written on SI, and SI's policy was it got, say, $10 a quote. So Twitter now owes SI tens of billions of dollars?
