New Delhi: Between July and December 2017, the Indian government made 315 Twitter account information requests, up from 261 made during the January-June period, and asked the micro-blogging website to remove 144 accounts, up from 102 from the previous period.
According to Twitter's 12th bi-annual Transparency Report that was released late Thursday, the company withheld content in three per cent of the account removal requests from the Indian government/police and courts (there were two account removal requests by courts and 142 from the government).
In 315 account information requests from India, Twitter "produced some information" in 15 per cent of such requests.
Twitter defines the government's information requests as requests issued by law enforcement and other government agencies.
Overall, since August 2015, the company has removed over 1.2 million accounts globally that promoted terrorism.
"During the second half of last year, we permanently suspended 274,460 such accounts," the report noted.
