UPDATE: Oneok VS. Tweeter
By Associated Press
Tulsa, OK – Oneok drops lawsuit against Twitter
TULSA, Okla. (AP) One day after natural gas distributor Oneok Inc. sued social networking site Twitter for trademark infringement, the company is dropping the lawsuit.
Oneok spokeswoman Megan Washbourne said Wednesday the issue has been resolved.
Oneok filed the lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Tulsa, saying San Francisco-based Twitter wrongly allowed an anonymous customer the user name "ONEOK." Washbourne says that account since has been transferred to Oneok.
An e-mail sent Wednesday to Twitter's public relations department wasn't immediately answered.
