Twitter is suing one of its third-party partners Twittad to prevent it from using the word "tweet."

The micro-blogging platform is taking legal action against Twittad, which sells advertising on Twitter, to prevent it from using the word “tweet” in its registered trademark “Let Your Ad Meet Tweets”

Twitter complained to a Californian court last week that the registration, “unfairly exploits the widespread association by the consuming public of the mark Tweet with Twitter, and threatens to block Twitter from its registration and legitimate uses of its own mark.”
