Over a half year later, Twitter finally gets high traffic typo.
Last year Twitter filed a cybersquatting complaint against the owner of the Twiter.com domain name.

Twitter dropped the case only to refile it shortly thereafter. A UDRP arbitration panel finally ruled in Twitter’s favor in November 2011.
