(AP) A French Jewish group says Twitter has turned over information that can help identify the authors of racist and anti-Semitic tweets that carried French hashtags.


The president of a Jewish student organization said Saturday the group was withdrawing a $50 million lawsuit against San Francisco-based Twitter Inc., originally filed as a means to pressure the company to comply and "end Twitter's indifference."


Jonathan Hayoun, of the Union of Jewish Students of France, said, "We obtained that Twitter respect the laws of our country."


In January, a Paris court ordered Twitter to turn over data that could help identify account holders who posted the tweets last fall that included slurs and photos evoking the Holocaust.


A joint statement issued Friday says Twitter gave the Paris prosecutor the information.
