Twitter Transparency Report: 2,058 Account Information Requests, up 46% [REPORT]

Twitter has released its fifth Transparency Report, a bi-annual update that aims to “provide more meaningful and constructive insight into the global government and copyright requests we receive, and their respective impact, with the goal of making this report more compelling and informative for you”.

Through January 1 to June 30 of this year, information requests from governments are up an eye-opening 46 percent, totalling 2,058 requests, compared to 1,410 in the last six months of 2013.

The bulk of government requests came from the U.S. – 61 percent, in fact – with Japan and Saudi Arabia the only other countries in triple digits.

Removal requests climbed 14.5 percent, led by Turkey and France, while DCMA copyright takedown notices leapt almost 38 percent.
