Beardsley, Jensen and Von Wald
Think you own your Twitter account – well, maybe not.
Is your Twitter account a personal account or a corporate account for your employer? It's more complicated than you might think.
Who follows your Twitter account – friends or clients of your employer? Whose name is on the account – yours or your employer's? Is "your" Twitter account essentially a customer list?
At this point in the evolution of Twitter, most legal commentators would probably say that no one knows for sure who owns "your" Twitter account.
There's a lawsuit going on in California where this issue may be addressed.
