A former employee of phonedog is being sued due to his reluctance to hand over Twitter account details to his ex-employer. Noah Kravitz was employed to tweet for phonedog, but later changed his username when he left.
This means that Kravitz regained the 17,000 followers that he acquired whilst being under contract of the mobile news providers. So, where do you sit in this argument? Who owns the follower count – the employee (who does all the work) or the employer (who funds the task)?
