Twitter Fights Back

TechCrunch began publishing documents stolen from Twitter by a hacker this week, claiming they got the "green light" from Twitter Inc. Not so, say the Twitter founders.

Twitter co-founder Evan Williams reacted via Twitter [ed. note: how else?] and co-founder Biz Stone reacted in a post on the Twitter blog, saying, "The publication of stolen documents is irresponsible and we absolutely did not give permission for these documents to be shared." more
