Twitter sues U.S. over demand for records on anti-Trump account


 
Nasdaq.com/Reuters by David Ingram
 Twitter Inc  said
in a lawsuit on Thursday that it had received a demand from U.S.
officials for records that could reveal the user behind an
account opposed to President Donald Trump and that it was
challenging the demand in court. 

The lawsuit over the account @ALT_uscis, claimed to be run
by federal immigration employees, was filed in federal court in
San Francisco, where Twitter is based.

Following Trump's inauguration in January, anonymous Twitter
feeds voicing concerns at more than a dozen U.S. government
agencies appeared to challenge the president's views on climate
change and other issues. [nL1N1FG1EK]
