Peanut Tweeter was a blog that took tweets and put them in speech bubbles for peanuts characters. It was a parody that should have been allowed under fair use. On June 17th, it was shut down. Shortly after that, this explanation was given: As you may or may not have known, @Peanutweeter was shut down by Tumblr today, June 17, 2011. The reason for this is that Tumblr received the letter below from Iconix Brand Group, owner of Peanuts Worldwide, LLC. While I maintain that @Peanutweeter fell under parody and Fair Use, and have indicated so on the front page, I do not have the means nor the desire to prove this in court. The purpose of this petition is to show Iconix Brand Group the number of people that believe this should be considered fair use, and to convince them to drop their complaint.
