The Transparency Report covering Twitter’s data from May 26 to June 25 this year includes harassment, defamation, terrorism and more.
There is a constant fight between Twitter and social media over the new IT rules and in the meantime the company has released its transparency report. This report from Twitter comes 1 month after the new IT rules came into effect. A month-long account has been given in this report, how the company handled the complaints of the users and what action was taken on them. Along with this, the web link or URL of the person against whom the action was taken has also been given.
Twitter said in its report that, we will publish this report on a monthly basis, and we are committed to improving it over time based on feedback received by the government or internal changes allowing to provide more clear data. Huh.
