‘Your tweets belong to you’: Twitter

September 12, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Twitter has modified its terms of service to state unequivocally that messages posted belong to their authors and not to the company.

‘Twitter is allowed to “use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute” your tweets because that’s what we do. However, they are your tweets and they belong to you,’ wrote Twitter co-founder Biz Stone in a blog post Thursday announcing the modifications.

Twitter is still hammering out a set of guidelines for developers on the proper use of the company’s API.”
