Twitter Account Ownership Follow Up

On December 26, 2011, I discussed the Twitter account ownership lawsuit between PhoneDog and Noah Kravitz. On December 28, 2011, I appeared on Canada's CTV News to discuss the case. Since not all the facts are yet known it is too soon to speculate who owns the account. However, as I previously stated on December 26, 2011, PhoneDog's claim that each Twitter Follower is worth $2.50 appears to be clearly erroneous.

If PhoneDog hires an expert that claims under oath that each Twitter Follower is worth $2.50, I believe it would be easy to dispute this assertion. While some of the lawsuit's exact issues appear novel in a court of law, a case regarding the ownership of a LinkedIn account is currently being litigated. Below is my recent appearance on CTV News where I discuss the PhoneDog matter.
