Twitter files lawsuit against alleged spammers and spam tool providers

John Ribeiro | April 9, 2012
Twitter has filed a lawsuit against "five of the most aggressive tool providers and spammers" in a federal court in San Francisco, opening a new front in its battle against spam, it said Thursday.

It said its engineers would continue to find ways to counter spam, including using its link shortener to analyze whether a link in a Twitter message leads to malware or malicious content.

Twitter has asked the court to rule on a number of reliefs including monetary damages to be determined at trial from all defendants for breach of its terms of service. The defendants could not be immediately reached for comment.
