From July to December, Twitter has received the following: Information requests: 1,009
Removal requests: 42
Copyright notices: 3,268
As we reported during the first Transparency Report, Twitter already posts DMCA takedown notices and content withholding requests to the watchdog site Chilling Effects. Compared to its first transparency report, Twitter has received more information (up 160) and removal (up 36) requests in the second half of 2012. However, the number of copyright notices have dropped (from 3,378 to 3,268). The company believes that there will be more government inquiries in the foreseeable future.
