Free Academic Articles Via Twitter?

According to this article in The Atlantic, there is a movement to gain access to academic "paywalled" articles via Twitter. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I understand that some of the fees for accessing articles are too high and often in biblical studies there is little if any financial reward for the fruits of one's research. On the other hand, this appears to be a blatant attempt to circumvent legal access and probably violates copyright laws. Thoughts?
