Building a Twitter following under an employer's umbrella has become a common business practice. But what happens to that Twitter account when an employee leaves the company - do they get to take their followers with them, or does the company retain them as social media assets? Oakland-based blogger Noah Kravitz joins us to discuss the potentially precedent-setting lawsuit that may decide this question.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Eric Goldman, associate professor of law at Santa Clara University and director of the High Tech Law Institute
  • Noah Kravitz, editor-at-large for TechnoBuffalo.com and former Phonedog.com employee
  • Tom McInerney, partner at Ogletree Deakins, a national labor and employment specialty law firm.
