Twitter has been hit with a class-action lawsuit for sending unsolicited text messages, TechCrunch reports.
Two California residents are suing because Twitter sent them a text message after they had turned off all cellphone notifications, meaning they had to pay a charge for the incoming text.
The men are alleging that this is a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The men are requesting $1,500 in damages for each call for each member of a class that they say numbers in the tens of thousands.
TechCrunch calls the suit "rather bizarre."
