The latest Transparency Report from Twitter ( $TWTR), also revealed which national governments have sent the most requests for users' information in the first half of 2017(see chart below). By a large margin, the United States is at the top of the list. Of the 2,111 account information requests made, Twitter responded 77 percent of the time with at least some data. A total of 4,594 accounts were specified in the requests. And while Turkey made 554 requests, on no occasion did Twitter produce information for Erdoğan's government. Twitter's compliance rate varies significantly between countries. In the top ten list above, Italy had the most success with a rate of 78 percent, compared to India with just 21 percent, and Turkey with 0 percent.
