ads, badweb 

My facebook feed contained a sponsored post from a Facebook page. The post was a link to a different website, seemingly unaffiliated with the page that made the sponsored post. The content on the page being linked to was screenshots of a funny twitter thread

So here we have a page paying Facebook for exposure in the hopes of getting more of a cut of Facebook's ad revenue linking to another website that gets ad revenue by stealing funny posts from a website that gets ad revenue because a lot of people work for them for free in hopes of... I dunno, going viral and plugging their soundcloud

The (b)adweb is an unfathomable gordian knot of grifts
