More than 5,000 tweets removed over copyright infringement. That's not as many as i'd have thought. I guess they were the successful complaints.

Twitter Publishes Transparency Report: January 1, through June 30 2012 [blog.twitter.com]
today we’re unveiling our first Twitter Transparency Report.
the primary goal of this report is to shed more light on:


•government requests received for user information,
•government requests received to withhold content, and
•DMCA takedown notices received from copyright holders.

The report also provides insight into whether or not we take action on these requests.

We’ve received more government requests in the first half of 2012, as outlined in this initial dataset, than in the entirety of 2011. Moving forward, we’ll be publishing an updated version of this information twice a year.

Along with publishing our Transparency Report, we’re also partnering with Herdict, which “collects and disseminates real-time, crowdsourced information about Internet filtering, denial of service attacks, and other blockages.”

Just wait until the government requests received to withhold content are about Twitter reporting their actual requests to withhold content :)
