JP Gov sends the second most requests for Twitter to disclose account information in the world



This initial Twitter Transparency Report includes data from January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012. We’ll be updating this information twice a year.

This data includes government requests we’ve received for user account information, typically in connection with criminal investigations or cases.

・We notify affected users of requests for their account info unless we’re prohibited by law.
・More information is available in our Guidelines for Law Enforcement.
・To minimize potential risk to ongoing investigations, we’re not including specific numbers for countries where we’ve received      fewer than 10 requests; instead you’ll see ‘<10’ in the relevant cells.
・Same holds true for number of ‘Users/Accounts specified’ – to minimize potential risk to our users, we’re not including specific numbers where fewer than 10 ‘Users/Accounts specified’ are affected; instead you’ll see ‘<10’ in the relevant cells.
・’Users/Accounts Specified’ includes the accounts identified in government requests we’ve received, and may include the same account being requested more than once or requests for accounts that do not exist or were misidentified.
・We may not comply with every request for a variety of reasons. For example:
・We do not comply with requests that fail to identify a Twitter user account.
・We may seek to narrow requests that are overly broad.
・In other cases, users may have challenged the requests after we’ve notified them.





About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
