Retweet is now a registered trademark of Twitter

Retweet® trademark

Domain investors take notice: Twitter has registered “RETWEET” as a mark with the USPTO.

The trademark registration process began way back in 2009, with an “intent to use” (ITU) filing for the following classes and use:

Class 41: Providing on-line journals, namely, blogs featuring user-defined content

Class 45: Online social networking services; providing a website on the internet for the purpose of social networking

The application was approved in late 2015, and Twitter filed extensions every six months since, until it was ready to demonstrate use of the RETWEET mark.

Strangely, proof of use was simply a screenshot of the Twitter FAQ, that included the “Retweet” reference.

It seems that was sufficient for the USPTO, that granted registration of the mark, issuing a certificate on April 4th.

Domainers with domains that contain the keyword should definitely be worried, depending on use.

Retweet® this.
