By The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ' An Internet company is suing a former employee, saying he left the firm and took his 17,000 Twitter followers with him.

PhoneDog LLC says Noah Kravitz owes them $340,000 because when Kravitz left to do freelance work, he changed his Twitter name from PhoneDog_Noah to noahkravitz, and kept his followers. He eventually went to work for a competitor.

Kravitz, of Oakland, Calif., says in court documents he did nothing wrong.

PhoneDog is website that reviews mobile devices such as phones and tablets. It has offices based in Mount Pleasant, S.C., along the coast.

PhoneDog says Kravitz should pay $2.50 per follower per month for eight months. He worked for PhoneDog from 2006 until last year.

A hearing is set for next month.
