Looks like lawsuits are flying everywhere these days. After we have been seeing companies suing each other for patent infringements, we now have people suing the daylights out of companies for petty reasons. In the latest example, two California residents Drew Moss and Sahar Maleksaeedi have sued social networking giant Twitter for sending them an SMS after they had asked the site to stop sending them SMS' using the "STOP" command.
The men claim that Twitter sent them a confirmatory SMS saying that their SMS subscription has been stopped AFTER they sent a message to atop these very SMS'.
The men claim that these messages cost them incoming charges and also violated the US Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. The two are seeking as much as $1,500 in damages for EACH message that allegedly violated the TCPA
