Twitter Just Defeated Trump In Battle Over First Amendment Rights

President Trump and the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to unmask their online critics has been met with a resounding defeat.

Reuters has reported that Twitter has withdrawn their lawsuit against the government in response to the government withdrawing the demand that the social media company reveal the identity of the person behind the @ALT_uscis Twitter account, which criticizes the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.

“Permitting CBP to pierce the pseudonym of the @ALT_uscis account would have a grave chilling effect on the speech of that account in particular and on the many other ‘alternative agency’ accounts that have been created to voice dissent to government policies,” said Twitter in their lawsuit.

The hypocrisy of the Trump administration trying to unmask a critic is incredible, seeing as they are currently promoting the false narrative that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice committed a crime by unmasking the identities of Trump campaign members who were caught communicating with wiretapped foreign agents.

But thankfully, the White House’s attempt to punish dissenters has fizzled out in yet another shameful defeat for the ham-fisted Trump administration, which is learning the hard way that the Constitution does guarantee certain protections to the American people.
