Two-time European Champions Benfica has secured a High Court order directing Twitter to reveal the identity of those behind an account that has posted allegedly defamatory information about the Portuguese team.

The social media company told Mr Justice Brian O'Moore, who granted the orders on Thursday, that it was neither consenting nor objecting to the orders.

The owners and operators of SL Benfica, Sport Lisboa E Benfica-Futebol, Sociedade Anonima Desportiva, sought the orders from the Irish High Court because Twitter’s European headquarters is based in Dublin.
