The company Twitter announced that governments around the world in the period between January and June last year demanded the removal of content from a record number of user accounts.
Twitter said that in that period, there were 43,387 legal requests for the removal of content from 196,878 accounts, which is shown by the data in the latest transparency report, which Reuters had an insight into.
The company confirmed that this is the largest number of requests since the company started publishing transparency reports in 2012.
Ninety-five percent of requests came from five countries, mostly from Japan, Russia, Turkey, India and South Korea, the statement said, adding that Twitter’s site was blocked in several countries, including China and North Korea.
Twitter, along with companies like Facebook and Google, has faced criticism in the United States and other countries for the way it fights disinformation and violent rhetoric on its platform.
