Twitter Australia Reveals Data Disclosure Figures

Twitter Australia Reveals Data Disclosure Figures

Twitter has updated its international Transparency Report, and it doesn’t look like Australian government agencies really care about anything posted on Twitter.

The updated transparency report reveals that, between July and December last year, Twitter Australia received less than 10 requests for user data last year.

Despite the low number, Twitter Australia only complied with 20 per cent of the requests to provide information.

Furthermore, Twitter Australia reported that zero orders from courts and law enforcement agencies asking for tweets to be taken down were received.

Compared to the US, Twitter Australia had a legal walk in the park. 833 account information requests were received pertaining to 1323 accounts. Only 69 per cent of those were complied with, however.
