    Twitter sues government to stop unmasking of anti-Trump account

    The Trump administration is trying to force Twitter to unmask at least one anti-Trump account, according to a new lawsuit.

    Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) filed a lawsuit Thursday against the U.S. government to block a request to provide personal information about the user behind @ALT_uscis.

    The account, whose name stands for alternative U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, is one of several alternative government accounts created after President Trump took office. It currently has more than 40,000 followers.

    According to the lawsuit, an agent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) faxed a summons to Twitter last month requesting the user's account login, phone number, mailing address and IP address.
    Twitter argues in the suit that the request is a threat to free speech, which includes "a right to disseminate such anonymous or pseudonymous political speech."

    Unmasking is only "wrong" when done by non-republicans. Gotcha.

    Seems like you have something to hide.

    Big Brother is our friend whether it is the GOP or DNC.

    Still waiting for "yeah, that was ptetty goddamn hypocritical of the guy the Republicans chose to lead them".

    I'm guessing that wont happen. You know, due to being a hypocritical conservative shill.
