First published in July 2012, Twitter has unveiled the latest edition of its bi-annual Transparency Report, which takes a closer look at requests that Twitter has received for account information, government requests for content removal and copyright notices, including any action Twitter has taken.
In the new instalment, Twitter notes that the U.S. remains far and away its biggest requester of information, and reveals that, in the past six months, they have increased the countries in which they are withholding content from two to seven. Additionally, they have un-withheld content for the first time over that same period.
Did you know that today is #DataPrivacyDay? Well, it is. And to celebrate, Twitter is scaring the pants off of misguided kiddies and other online miscreants by releasing its second transparency report.
The good news? Twitter has complied with fewer requests overall.
But the bad news is that there are more requests – so more government entities are aware that this option exists, they’re just not doing it right. Yet.
The big news: Twitter just released a report that details (somewhat) where requests for user info and copyright takedown notices come from.
The funny news: One of the complaints linked to the report is from Square, which is Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s new company.
