Case No. CGC-10-503630

IMPORTANT:  TO ALL PERSONS IN CALIFORNIA (i.e., WHO RESIDE IN CALIFORNIA AS OF OCTOBER 27, 2015) WHO USED TWITTER ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 18, 2009. THIS NOTICE SUMMARIZES THE TERMS OF A PROPOSED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT UNDER WHICH YOU MAY HAVE LEGAL RIGHTS.

The San Francisco County, California Superior Court has directed that this Notice be provided to inform you of a proposed class action lawsuit settlement.  The settlement will resolve a lawsuit against Twitter, Inc. ("Twitter") filed in San Francisco County Superior Court, Case No. CGC-10-503630 (the "Lawsuit").  Your rights and options -- and the strict deadlines to exercise them -- are explained in this Notice.

The "Representative Plaintiff" in the Lawsuit alleges that Twitter violated the privacy rights of all persons in California (i.e., who reside in California as of October 27, 2015) who used the service before November 18, 2009 (the "Class"). If you used Twitter in California on or before November 18, 2009 and were a California resident on October 27, 2015 you are part of the Class and therefore part of the Lawsuit. If so, you can participate in the settlement as a Class member and be subject to any orders or judgment issued by the Court, favorable or unfavorable.  You can also choose to "opt-out" of the Class and not participate in the settlement and the Court will allow you to do so.  You can also remain part of the Class and object to part or all of the settlement and you can also appear in the Lawsuit with a lawyer, at your expense.

The Lawsuit involves claims arising out of Version 1 of Twitter's privacy policy and terms of service, which were in effect until November 18, 2009. Twitter denies the allegations made by the Representative Plaintiff and further denies causing damage to any Twitter user.

If you want to opt-out of the settlement, you must do so by March 11, 2016.  If you want to remain part of the Class but object, you must do so by March 11, 2016.  To opt-out or object, you must also follow the specific procedures described at www.CATwitterSettlement.com.  For more information about the Lawsuit, the settlement, opting-out or objecting, please go to the same web address/link, you may also write to Jane Doe v.
