It’s a potentially complicated question when an account is used both professionally and personally. Now a case regarding whether a Twitter account belongs to a company or its former employee has raised questions about the use of the social media phenomenon.

PhoneDog, a website devoted to all things mobile products and services, sued former employee Noah Kravitz for $340,000, according to the complaint filed in US District Court in the Northern District of California.

@Google calls out @Facebook’s data hypocrisy, blocks #Gmail import | @Epicenter | @Wired

According to Ryan Singel 2010, “Facebook has long been a one-way valve. You put data in, so you can connect with friends, and then you can’t get it out and use it the way you would like to, even as the company is trying to corner the market on your identity.
