FTC Reportedly Investigates Twitter

US consumer watchdog the Federal Trade Commission is reportedly investigating the way Twitter deals with the companies that build applications and services for the company.

The agency is responding to complaints that Twitter is making it harder for some software developers to design applications that run in concert with the company’s service, which allows people to communicate in 140-character messages, one of the people said.

According to some reports, the FTC is now looking at Twitter’s relationship with those third party companies.

Twitter declined to comment.
