Twitter Reports Rise Of Government Requests For Users' Data

The requests Twitter has received during the first half of the year from governments around the world to release user's private information have been increased by 40 percent, the microblogging company said Wednesday.

According to Twitter's its semi-annual transparency report, the United States made three-quarters of the 1,157 data requests during the six-month period,

In the first half of the year, authorities in Japan, another large Twitter user base, made 87 requests while U.K. agencies filed 26. The majority of the requests come in the form of court-issued subpoenas, Twitter said.

Governments usually want the emails or IP addresses tied to a Twitter account.

Twitter was also censored the most in Brazil, where courts issued orders on nine occasions to remove a total of 39 defamatory tweets.

The report did not include secret information requests within the United Sates authorized under the Patriot Act, a law enacted after the September 11 attacks.
