Remember when we told you about Twitter’s battle to trademark “tweet?” Well sleep tight, tweeps, because there’s a settlement in the works.

Twitter has reportedly agreed to drop its lawsuit against Twittad, current owner of a trademarked phrase that includes the word “tweet,” so long as Twittad transfers “tweet” trademark ownership to Twitter.

    No opinion on this one... I guess I just don't know enough about "tweet" or "Twitter" at this point.
    I just wanted to add this thought... Usually there is an agreement associated with the use of any account; what about this one?

    It strikes me as ridiculous that anyone can "own" the rights to a common English word. Am I supposed to send Twitter a check if I tell you that I heard a bird tweet outside my window?

    Other option needed again. Personally think twitter and others like it are just a waste of time.

    Twitter follows what ever the govt. tells them to do. Ever wonder how there are thousands of protests and the word #occupy is used in almost every tweet yet it's not trending.
