Twitter wanted to sue the U.S. government after the Department of Homeland Security sought records revealing the identity behind the rogue Twitter account "ALT_uscis". A lawsuit was filed by the social media giant on Thursday against the DHS, which has now been withdrawn after agency dropped summons for Twitter records.
With the identity of those behind the rogue Twitter accounts critical of President Donald Trump being a secret, it is a preservation of free speech. The DHS sought identity of those behind "alt-gov", but there are other similar Twitter handles that are making sure people get all the facts that the government wouldn't share.
Below is the list of some of the top U.S. government's rogue Twitter accounts specific to different departments within the Trump administration.
