Twitter Releases Transparency Report about the First Half of 2014

Posted by Amanda(Yueqi)Zhou on July 31, 2014

Today, Twitter released its Transparency Report about the first half of 2014.

The report says information requests, including government requests, increased by 46% over the second half of last year. 54 countries cotacted Twitter for criminal investigations.


Removal requests including government requests increased by 55 cases over the second half of the year.


Twiiter has seen a 27% increase in copyright notice over the second half of 2013.


I like the way Twitter disclose the information. It shows that the company has a transparent policy, which is good to build customer’s trust and to protect the integrity of the company.

The increase of the requests number Twitter received may be due to the worldwide expansion of the company and it indicates that social media platforms are getting more powe than before.
