BlackBerry has alleged Twitter infringed on six of its patents, like push notifications, silencing notifications for a message thread and mobile advertising techniques. “The lawsuit accuses the micro-blogging site of co-opting BlackBerry’s technology for use in several services, including the main Twitter app and Twitter Ads,” said the report. Twitter was yet to comment on the lawsuit. Also Read - WhatsApp: How to check all the photos, videos and files shared with an individual

Software major BlackBerry in 2018 sued Facebook and its subsidiaries — photo sharing app Instagram and messaging service WhatsApp. The suit alleged that Facebook has infringed on some of BlackBerry’s patents including security features, mobile notifications, and combining gaming with messaging. “Blackberry’s suit sadly reflects the current state of its messaging business. Having abandoned its efforts to innovate, Blackberry is now looking to tax the innovation of others. We intend to fight,” Facebook had replied.
