PeopleBrowsr Given Temporary Access to Twitter’s Data

Court grants PeopleBrowsr temporary restraining order against Twitter in order to maintain full access to Twitter’s data. Twitter has faced plenty of criticism in the past due to its relationships with partners and developers, but this is one of the first times that a partner has successfully taken action against the social media giant. PeopleBrowsr, makers of social analytics tools like Kred, has been a partner of Twitter for the past four years paying more than $1 million for unlimited access to Twitter’s data firehose. They are taking Twitter to court as they believe that Twitter is not providing an open ecosystem and are only allowing a few closely controlled partners sufficient data access to compete.
