IBM sells over 900 patents to Twitter

IBM has sold more than 900 patents to social media network Twitter.

Both Twitter and IBM also entered into a patent cross-license agreement.

IBM did not share financial terms.


IBM is the largest receiver of patents last year.

“This acquisition of patents from IBM and licensing agreement provides us with greater intellectual property protection and gives us freedom of action to innovate on behalf of all those who use our service,” said Ben Lee, Legal Director for Twitter.
