The microblogging site Twitter has taken control of the domain name, according to WHOIS records.

Twitter has started re-directing the URL to, its site for businesses looking to advertise using Twitter’s Promoted Tweets, Promoted Trends, and Promoted Accounts.

The change in ownership took place earlier this week, with the registrant changing from Edward Murphy of PayPerPost to Twitter, Inc.
