In its first ever transparency report, Twitter has reported that the United States leads the pack when it comes to government demands for user data, having filed 679 requests in the first half of the year.
Worldwide, Twitter said it has received more government demands for data in the first six months of this year than all of last year.
In Twitter’s Transparency Report, it said it has complied with 75 percent of user-data disclosure demands by producing “some or all information” requested by U.S. authorities. Globally, the average was 63 percent.
