Twitter keeps it simple, even when it comes to updating the legalese in its terms of service. As part of changes made Thursday, Twitter translated some of the jargon into plain language, to lessen the chances that its users might get the wrong idea about what was happening.

"What's yours is yours - you own your content," Twitter wrote in a colored capsule that stood out from the rest of the surrounding text.

It seems Twitter wanted to avoid the kind of uproar that rattled Facebook this year after some murky language left the impression that the popular online hangout might claim ownership of the words and photos posted on its Web site.
