Data Privacy Day 2013: Twitter reveals US government makes 80% of info requests
Twitter has released its second transparency report, which demonstrated a frightening increase in requests for user data by the US government and ignited serious concerns over privacy and free expression.

­The list disclosed data requests from over 30 nations, and revealed that the US government was responsible for 815 of the 1,009 information requests in the second half of 2012 – just over 80 percent of all inquiries.

Twenty percent of all US requests were 'under seal,' meaning that users were not notified that their information was accessed.

This begs the questions: Why, and to what use?
