Twitter wins bid war for re-tweet.com
Twitter has become the owner of the domain name re-tweet.com. The article says Twitter bought the domain from an individual named David Quinlan on June 13, 2011.
The domain Re-tweet.com was sold through a Flippa auction a few months ago, but Twitter finally got it for only $150.
Twitter has long been trying to acquire a U.S. trademark for ‘retweet’, which is a way for users to easily spread other people’s public messages on Twitter, but the company still hasn’t made it its own.
