SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) today announced that it has entered into a binding agreement to settle the consolidated class action lawsuit commenced in 2016 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The case was consolidated under the caption In re Twitter, Inc. Securities Litigation, Case No. 4:16-CV-0534-JST (SK).

The proposed settlement resolves all claims asserted against Twitter and the other named defendants without any admission, concession or finding of any fault, liability or wrongdoing by the Company or any defendant.
