twitter.jpgLos Angeles – After a nearly three year battle, Twitter finally has exclusive rights to the Tweet trademark at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The problems began when Twittad, the largest advertising platform on Twitter, registered the “Let Your Ad Meet Tweets.” trademark first.  The judge ultimately agreed with Twitter’s argument that “tweet” was a word made famous before Twittad registered its trademark.  There was no comment on whether money was exchanged for abandonment of the trademark.  For more information, click here: Twitter Trademark Dispute.
