A UK newspaper group has withdrawn its legal action over a Twitter account spoofing its chief executive.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".

i really dont understand twitter. i just had a look at that guys page to see what all the fuss was about, and there is nothing interesting on it at all. once you've scrolled down past all the recent court business and got to the actual spoofs bit, its just all nonsense and in-jokes. and he's churning them out about twenty times a day. why do people follow this stuff?

The only people that care are those that 'get' the in jokes.
