Court Orders Twitter to Continue Providing Data to PeopleBrowsr
In another example of Twitter’s growing contentious relationship with its partners, a judge ordered the company to continue providing its data directly to PeopleBrowsr. PeopleBrowsr has used Twitter’s data for the past four years to create products like social media scoring platform Kred and Playground, a cloud-based social analytics platform. The company argued that being cut off from Twitter’s Firehose Analytics would cause irreparable harm to its business. A San Francisco Superior Court judge agreed yesterday and granted PeopleBrowsr a temporary restraining order. A hearing date for the preliminary injunction has been set for Jan. 8.
