Whatever next ?

JPMorgan Chase has evicted a Twitter squatter.

The New York Post reports that Twitter yanked the handle @Chase from Chase Giunta, who had been aggressively re-tweeting other people’s criticisms of the bank.

On Thursday, JPMorgan, which had been using the clunkier @ChaseNews, immediately snapped up the @Chase handle.

A source said that JPMorgan had been following @Chase for about a year and filed a complaint alleging trademark infringement in recent weeks.

Twitter’s terms of use say it will suspend an account 'when there is a clear intent to mislead others through the unauthorized use of a trademark'.

Twitter reps reached out to Giunta, a 25-year-old Dallas-based graphic designer, and offered him an opportunity to comply with Twitter’s policy before stripping him of the @Chase user handle, according to a person close to the Twitter.
