Submission + - Twitter’s Patent Strategy: Don’t Bothe (bnet.com)

An anonymous reader writes: There is no question that Twitter is big in social media, and that makes the company's patent strategy curious. Check US Patent Office records and you see that Twitter has apparently never even filed a patent application. This is not a mistake, but a deliberate strategy that runs counter to advice from most experienced high tech executives and investors. Apparently the the venture capitalists that invested in the company tolerate the approach, and it may be one that works and saves money, at least for smaller companies.
