FTC probes Twitter for antitrust abuses
The Federal Trade Commission has launched an investigation into Twitter, focusing on the company’s interactions with outside developers who build around its platform.
The FTC has asked several companies in the Twitter ecosystem about how Twitter’s actions have affected their business, one developer who has been contacted told CNNMoney.
Twitter declined to comment on the investigation.
Uber Media, which has been viewed as a competitor to Twitter, was among those the FTC reached out to.
“We have been contacted by the FTC, and we intend to fully comply with their request for information,” a company representative told CNNMoney.
