July 26, 2014 00:49


Russia represented by  Roskomnadzor  took the third place among the other countries in the number of requests to delete the data in Twitter. This is stated in a traditional statement of transparency (Transparency Report) of the microblogging service for the first half of 2014.

According to the published information, in January-June of this year, Russia has sent to the management of Twitter 32 requests for the removal of information. In most cases (59%) Twitter satisfied the requests of Russian regulatory bodies, blocking  8 accounts and 11 tweets. Percentage of requests satisfaction showed by Russia was the highest among the other countries according to the data available.

The report says that the claims of Roskomnadzor involve a violation of federal law "On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development" and "On Information, Information Technologies and Protection of Information".

Only Turkey goes ahead of Russia with 186 requests and France, which accounts for 108 requests. Twitter was less willing to satisfy requests of these countries - 30% and 28%, respectively.

During the reporting period, Twitter received 732 requests. This is 14% more than for the previous reporting period. Only 9% of them were satisfied. Service has blocked 25 accounts and 251 tweets.

Twitter is a free microblogging service founded in 2006 by Jack Dorsey and Biz Stone. At its heart are 140-character bursts of information called tweets. Users can include links to other content in their tweets, and broadcasts can be public or private. Celebrities, journalists, politicians and other public figures have established significant followings on Twitter. Media outlets in particular use Twitter as a way to broadcast breaking news. Since its founding, Twitter has grown into a social media juggernaut, and popularity on the service is often used as a benchmark of influence. Companies have also used the service as a way to engage with their customers - offering promotions and other specials.
