 Increase in Government Data Requests With New Twitter Transparency

Government information requests have increased by up to 40 percent worldwide with social network site Twitter's latest government transparency report.

According to the Verge, the report does not list secret orders from the NSA and other US intelligence agencies.


Twitter refused to reach a compromise, saying that disclosing the numbers in wide range "seriously undermines" transparency.

The company has last year sued the US government over violation of First Amendment rights after receiving gag orders on intelligence requests like Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court orders and national security letters.
