Suit Over Ownership of Twitter Followers Settled

We previously reported on the lawsuit over ownership of Twitter followers, when an employee left PhoneDog and changed the twitter handle of an account that had been used to tweet to PhoneDog customers. That case has now settled on confidential terms, but it appears the twitter phone dog.jpgemployee came out ahead. According to a statement from the employee, Noah Kravitz: "I'm very glad to have worked this out between us," Kravitz said in a statement. "If anything good has come of this, I hope it's that other employers and employees can recognize the importance of social media ... good contracts and specific work agreements are important, and the responsibility for constructing them lies with both parties."
