California Attorney General Kamala Harris found a modern way to take enforcement action recently: via Twitter.
Harris took to Twitter to compliment United Airlines on the company’s new mobile app, calling it “fabulous.”
Earlier this year Harris negotiated an agreement with Amazon, Apple, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Research in Motion in which the mobile application platforms agreed to comply with the Act.
The companies – which represent over 95 percent of the mobile app market for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices – further agreed to establish a format for consumers to report apps that do not comply with the law and to implement a process for reported noncompliance. Facebook joined the agreement in June.
