This strange feeling of getting a copyright claim from Citigroup about a tweet someone did quoting "City research" extracts that landed on my website because a MEP retweeted it and my bot retweets systematically all MEP's on twitter and display the content on my website.

what happened ?
my twitter bot @IrtMEP retweets MEP's (members of the european parliament) from a twitter list.
one of the 600+ MEP retweeted it on its own, my bot just go after each of these tweets/retweets and push them to an aggregator mep.euwatch.eu

can this get more complicated than this for me ? I don't think so but had I not replied to their claim
I'm not sure what would have enfolded for me in the long run.
