Twitter's Censorship May Be Governments Fault

Twitter Inc. saw an increase in government requests worldwide in 2020 to remove content published by journalists and news outlets, according to data issued by the social media platform.

In its clarity report published Wednesday, Twitter said established accounts of 199 journalists and news outlets on its program met 361 legal orders from governments to block content in the second half of 2020, up 26% from the first half of the year.

The biannual report on Twitter's implementation of system rules and the information and removal requests it gets comes as social media companies including Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc's YouTube face government review worldwide over the content released on their platforms.
