Twitter Updates TOS

twitter-bird-2

I do not know what exactly has changed but today (or was it yesterday) Twitter sent out emails indicating that something has changed within their TOS (Terms of Service). That email also instructed users to check out their blogs and pages containing their TOS. Check them out here:

Overview: http://blog.twitter.com
Terms: http://www.twitter.com/tos
Twitter: http://www.twitter.com

However, based on their tone, they are highlighting this:

YOUR TWEETS BELONG TO YOU!

What implications that gives I am not sure so I guess that leaves us room for thought. They are also reiterating that advertising tweets are still appropriate and allowed so I guess marketers and the Twitter company alike can still make loads of money from Twitter users.

Personally, I think Twitter is a very intelligent tool. It lets us know the latest trends around the globe and gives us the ability to stay updated every hour of the day. Though sometimes we may get annoyed with bombardments of advertisement, twitting is still definitely fun.
