Twitter Sues Feds not to Disclose User Info
TWITTER SUES GOVERNMENT TO STOP UNMASKING OF ANTI-TRUMP ACCOUNT
(CNN) – Twitter has filed a lawsuit to block the Trump administration from forcing it to reveal the personal information of a user.
That user has criticized the administration, particularly the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Agencies.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested the user’s information last month.
But Twitter’s lawsuit says the request is a threat to free speech.
Twitter and the Border Protection Agency declined to comment on the case.
