Twitter now owns Re-tweet.com
As of yesterday Twitter owns the domain name http://re-tweet.com, which they got from an individual named David Quinlan, who had purchased it previously for only 150$s.
If we had to guess Twitter is also after retweet.com which is currently owned by some kind of video creation company. If they are after that domain name they’ll get it after a while, just because their Twitter.
Some people think that Twitter may be trying to compete with Tweetmeme, which I disagree with, but they may be launching some kind of new retweet feature on this page. They already did open the front to compete with the Tweet button, i’ll give them that.
Twitter has been trying to get a US trademark for “retweet” but to this point has been unsuccessful.
