Legal Action Dropped [bbc.co.uk]
A UK newspaper group has withdrawn its legal action over a Twitter account spoofing its chief executive.
Northcliffe Media, owned by the Daily Mail, filed a subpoena in the US to have the identity of '@UnSteveDorkland' revealed.
But the account holder successfully challenged the order and the media group has subsequently backed down.
The still-anonymous tweeter described the case on Friday as "shameful and unnecessary".
