The Hill has reported Twitter has withdrawn its lawsuit against the Trump administration a day after it alleged that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers tried to get the company to reveal the identity of an account critical of the agency.

The company’s lawsuit filed Thursday accused CBP of employing an administrative summons typically used for investigating imported merchandise to get Twitter to unmask information about an account called @ALT_uscis – parody of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

In a New filing today, councel for Twitter said that CBP had withdrawn its summons, in-short dropping the effort to get the company to reveal the identity of the account user.
