Chances are good at least one “d’oh!” was uttered in at least one Netflix conference room Tuesday morning.

It seems the company, which on Monday announced it would split up its service and rebrand the DVD-delivery side Qwikster, neglected to lock up the name on Twitter.

Federal Government Sues to Keep AT&T from Buying T-Mobile

On Wednesday, the US Department of Justice filed suit to stop AT&T’s bid to buy rival cell service provider T-Mobile, saying the acquisition would result in consumers facing “higher prices, less product variety and innovation, and poorer quality services due to reduced incentives to invest.”
