Joe Biden’s government is issuing a huge number of demands that Twitter hand over data on its users, the social media giant is saying.

In fact, Twitter said in its report that Biden has filed an additional 103 percent hike in requests for data of users who are verified journalists.

Cindy Harper of Reclaim the Net reported that Twitter received 47,572 requests going after 198,931 accounts. Governments made 11,460 of those demands. 20% of those came from the United States government, according to Big League Politics.

“We continue to see a concerning trend toward attempts to limit global press freedom, with an increase in government legal demands targeting journalists, as well as an overall increasing number of legal demands on accounts – both represent record highs since reporting began,” Twitter said in the report.

In addition, Twitter received 11,500 requests for user accounts during the same timeframe. Harper noted that “these requests for information made by governments were made by the US government.”

According to Twitter, it was against 29 requests for user information from the US government. Though Twitter was in compliance with 69% of these requests.

“Of those 29 requests, we filed lawsuits to fight back in two instances and succeeded in convincing courts to apply First Amendment protections in one case. The other case remains pending,” Twitter stated.

Harper concluded by noting that “The company added that it either refused to disclose account information or narrowed the information disclosed in 60% of the requests from governments globally.”

Nothing like this happened under President Trump. And, tellingly, the media has been utterly silent about this attack on their free speech and online security.
