+ - Twitter's New Transparency Report: Governments Still Want Your Data->

Submitted by

Nerval's Lobster writes "All your Tweets are belong to us... with a court order. Twitter’s second transparency report reinforces what many already know: governments want online user data, and to yank select content from the Internet. Twitter’s first two transparency reports cover the entirety of 2012, so there’s not a deep historical record to mine for insight. Nonetheless, that year’s worth of data shows all types of government inquiry—information requests, removal requests, and copyright notices—either on the increase or holding relatively steady. Governments requested user information from Twitter some 1,009 times in the second half of 2012, up slightly from 849 requests in the first half of that year. Content-removal requests spiked from 6 in the first half of 2012 to 42 in the second. Meanwhile, copyright notices declined a bit, from 3378 in the first half of 2012 to 3268 in the second."
