Twitter is suing the US government for trying to unmask the Trump critic behind a rogue account

Not sure who is behind @ALT_uscis twitter account that critics Trump, but Twitter is suing to keep its identity private.  Not sure if @ALT_uscis will remain private, or if Twitter will win the suit.

Who is behind a popular Twitter account that has been critical of the Trump administration? The US government has been trying to find out.

A special agent from the US Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection unit sent a summons to Twitter on March 13, demanding information about the @ALT_USCIS account. (CIS stands for Citizenship and Immigration Services.) DHS was seeking all records including “user names, account login, phone numbers, mailing addresses, and I.P. addresses,” according to court papers filed by Twitter in San Francisco.
