Twitter Transparency Report

By Theresa Cramer

According to Twitter's blog:

Wednesday marks Independence Day here in the United States. Beyond the fireworks and barbecue, July 4th serves as an important reminder of the need to hold governments accountable, especially on behalf of those who may not have a chance to do so themselves.

With that in mind, today we’re unveiling our first Twitter Transparency Report. Inspired by the great work done by our peers @Google, the primary goal of this report is to shed more light on: 

  • government requests received for user information,
  • government requests received to withhold content, and
  • DMCA takedown notices received from copyright holders.
