    Twitter Inc is suing the US Government after it reportedly received demands from US officials asking for records that would reveal the user identities behind an account opposed to President Donald Trump.

    Key points:

    Twitter says it received a summons last month demanding the account's details

    US Department of Homeland Security, a defendant in the case, declines to comment.

    Twitter has a record of litigating in favour of user privacy ........

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

    Interesting to watch. So much money being spent by business defending themselves in suits brought about by governments regarding privacy, eh.

    And Chen came out again today reminding us that BlackBerry minds their own business, and isn't interested in ours, lol.

    Twitter actually actively filters replies to President Trump's tweets so that only negative and trolling ones appear in the top replies shown. This has been going on for quite some time.

    This is probably a case of Twitter trying to protect the identity of some clown that threatened President Trump's life. Twitter is a private company that can do as they please but their agenda is clear.

    I don't know the details except the article info, but it doesn't read like the issue regards a life being threatened.

    You think the MSM will report those details? Give me a break.

    The sidebar to that article says it all.

    Why would Homeland Security go after someone for simply being "anti-Trump"?
