Keynote Speaker:

Nolan Gardner, BS Communicative Disorders, Teacher Specialist at The Help Group in Sherman Oaks, CA

As an infant, Nolan was born with a profound bilateral hearing loss and was the first child in California to receive a cochlear implant in 1995 through California Children's Services. Although he was the only one with hearing loss in his family, his mother's determination guided him to grow up in a world full of sounds and to succeed. After attending preschool at John Tracy Clinic, Nolan continued his education fully mainstreamed in the Santa Barbara public school system, and successfully graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Communicative Disorders from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Nolan is continuing his education in a new field, Geology, while also working on his GeoTechnical Certification from the Pasadena Community College for a career change. Nolan also competed as the first Cochlear Implant competitor on the popular show, American Ninja Warrior in 2016. Nolan will be sharing his experiences and advice on navigating mainstream schools with a hearing loss.

“Positive Access Experiences and Achievement and Their Impact on Successful Transition to Higher Education: Learning from Deaf and Hard of Hearing College Students”

General Closing Session/Panel Facilitators:

Todd Higgins , MPA, Director, Gallaudet University Regional Center East, Gallaudet University/Northern Essex Community College, Haverhill, MA

Lisa Jacobs , MED, Director, National Outreach, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC

For the young deaf or hard of hearing child, family is the most significant influence on their development and provides a foundation for positive social-emotional, self-advocacy, cognitive and linguistic development which leads to positive access experience and achievement. The panelists, several deaf and hard of hearing college students who recognize the importance of their formative years and appreciate the support of their families in their own developmental journeys, will share their personal experiences growing up in a variety of family situations. They will also share their thoughts on their upbringing and the environmental factors and systems that influenced and shaped who they are today, especially how they received positive access experience, which resulted in their successful achievement that eventually had an impact on their transition to college. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions following the conclusion of the panel discussion, and will leave with practical information that can be applied to their deaf and hard of hearing children and/or students.

Removal requests

Arrow down icon

Removal requests include worldwide legal demands from governments and other authorized reporters, as well as reports based on local law(s) from trusted reporters and non-governmental organizations, to remove or withhold content.

This section focuses on third-party requests that compel Twitter to remove content for legal reasons (“legal requests”) under our City Military backpack Black Saint Laurent Ebay Sale Online 7Cetv2e
(“CWC”) policy. It does not include reports submitted by government officials to review content solely under Twitter’s Terms of Service or the HANDBAGS Shoulder bags Marc Ellis Clearance Professional 56nVgN
(together, “Twitter’s TOS”). More information about these requests is available in the government TOS reports Buy Cheap With Credit Card Sale Online Shop BlockT tall tote bag Black Tory Burch Clearance Outlet Store Reliable mY8ZXOx

Governments (including law enforcement agencies), organizations chartered to combat discrimination, and lawyers representing individuals are among the many complainants that submit legal requests included below. For example, we may receive a court order requiring the removal of defamatory statements in a particular jurisdiction, or law enforcement may ask us to remove prohibited content such as Nazi symbols in Germany.

In December 2017, Twitter Cheap Sale 2018 Unisex Backpack for Women On Sale Red Nylon 2017 one size Moncler Low Cost 2zqdSn
its in-product messaging about Backpack for Men On Sale Dark Blue polyester 2017 one size Emporio Armani For Nice With Credit Card Free Shipping Online Sale Online Cheap Clearance Store UxLcCrN
to better explain why content has been withheld. Subsequently, we began to differentiate between legal demands (e.g., court orders) and reports based on local law(s) (e.g., reports alleging the illegality of particular content in a certain country). To further increase transparency, this change is also reflected in the report below.

Legal demands Jul 1 - Dec 31, 2017

NOTE: The data in these reports is as accurate and comprehensive as possible.

About the numbers

Twitter received roughly 8% more global legal demands impacting approximately 18% fewer accounts, compared to the previous reporting period. As noted above, this is the first report where we have differentiated between legal demands and local law reports. Notably, this change has had the most significant impact on the reported volumes of legal demands from France and Germany, where we have previously received high volumes of requests from trusted reporters (organizations that have a mandate to report content that may be considered illegal hate speech under local European laws). Requests from trusted reporters are now included in the reports based on local law(s) section below.

We received legal demands specifying 11,650 accounts, from 42 different countries, including Sri Lanka, which is appearing for the first. We withheld content in a country 1,324 times, at either an account or Tweet level, and removed some content for violating Twitter’s TOS on 3,583 accounts. Cases did not result in content being withheld if we requested further information, but the requester failed to provide any, or where the request failed to identify content on Twitter. In addition, we generally do not take action on newsworthy content or protected political speech as further explained below.

Roughly 85% of the total global volume originated from only two countries: Russia and Turkey. Turkey continued to submit the most requests, accounting for approximately 65% of the overall worldwide total. We saw a 58% increase in the overall number of Turkish requests compared to the previous reporting period. Approximately 35% can be attributed to a one-time influx of legal demands related to spam accounts, as defined by the Twitter Rules , received in November 2017 from the Turkish Information and Communication Technologies Authorities (ICTA) under law 5651.

During this reporting period, 79 accounts of verified journalists and news outlets were the subject of legal demands. The majority of these requests originated from Turkey, which specified 58 of the 79 accounts. In total, we withheld one account, due to violations of Turkey’s anti-terror law.

Twitter filed legal objections when appropriate for court orders from Turkey that involved journalists or news outlets, arguing that those decisions may be contrary to protections of freedom of expression. One of these objections, related to a well-known Turkish daily newspaper, was accepted by the court and the access ban decision was lifted.

We received ten requests to remove content from Periscope. As a result of these requests, we suspended four accounts and removed one broadcast. We determined two of the reported broadcasts were not in violation of our policies, and we were unable to find the broadcasts reported in the three remaining requests.

Withheld content

The data includes all legal demands where we employed our Country Withheld Content (CWC) tool during this period. Since our first transparency report in 2012, we have used CWC in 13 countries in response to legal demands: Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Turkey, and United Kingdom. During this reporting period, we withheld content at the account or Tweet level in ten of those 13 countries.

Where permitted, Twitter has published copies of the underlying legal demands that have resulted in withheld content to 2018 New Cheap Price Discount Clearance Store Statement Clutch Blue Energy Clutch by VIDA VIDA 982oW2v
for public review.



We withheld four Tweets in response to a preliminary injunction, issued by a Brazilian court regarding a case involving a popular Brazilian singer, Gilberto Passos Gil Moreira. Mr. Moreira successfully petitioned the court to compel Twitter to remove content damaging his honor, reputation, and name. More information can be found on Lumen .


We withheld one Tweet in response to a legal demand from the Office Central de Lutte contre la Criminalité liée aux Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (OCLCTIC) for glorification of terrorist attacks. More information can be found on Lumen .


We withheld 17 accounts and 32 Tweets in response to legal demands received from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) under Section 69A of the India Information Technology Act, 2000, for propagating objectionable contents. More information can be found on Lumen .

Two accounts associated with a spiritual leader were the subject of another legal demand from Haryana Police, with the purpose of preventing riots. Following the conviction of the spiritual leader, violent riots in northern India led to the death of a number of people. We withheld both accounts. More information can be found on Lumen .


Twitter received a legal demand for violations of defamation laws. The reported Tweets claimed that a Tokyo-based artist and architect, Hajime Narukawa, stole the subject account owner's work to create the AuthaGraphic map. We withheld six Tweets in response. More information can be found on Lumen .


We withheld 23 accounts and 630 Tweets in response to legal demands from the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor). The legal demands were issued by Roskomnadzor under law 149-FZ, which covers reports of suicide promotion, extremism, gambling, illegal drugs, and child pornography.

Twitter withheld one Tweet related to a far right organization, Right Sector. In 2014, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation ruled that this organization was a terrorist organization. More information can be found on Lumen .


148 accounts and 322 Tweets were withheld in Turkey for violations of the laws related to personal rights and defamation, as well as Turkey’s anti-terror law. More information can be found on Lumen .

We filed 125 legal objections with Turkish courts in response to 466 court orders, on the grounds that they did not comply with the principles of freedom of speech, freedom of press, and/or did not specify the content at issue. Five objections were accepted in full and two were partially granted.

United Kingdom

Content was withheld in response to 16 removal requests about a violation of an injunction granted by a British court. The injunction prevents the publication of any material purporting to identify any individual as Jon Venables, a convicted murderer in the United Kingdom. More information can be found on Leather Statement Clutch Flower carry by VIDA VIDA The Cheapest Latest Collections For Sale Best Sale For Sale Buy Newest oP0w9I

Un-withheld content

Typically, content is un-withheld after a successful appeal of an original court order or because a legal procedure expired (e.g. we may un-withhold content subject to an access ban after that ban has expired). Neither of these situations occurred during this reporting period.

Terms of service violations

This section includes instances where, in response to legal demands identifying the specified accounts or Tweets, we completely removed the content from Twitter after determining it violated Twitter’s .

As we take an objective approach to reviewing legal demands for possible violations of our TOS, the fact that the reporters in these cases happened to be government officials had no bearing on whether any action was taken under the Buy Sale Online Discount Shop Tote Bag Kay Duncan Serenity MTote by VIDA VIDA Buy Cheap Great Deals ueqvK3g
. Our actions were consistent with our commitment to free expression .



We removed content on 143 out of 800 accounts specified in 142 legal demands. The majority of the content was removed for violating the Twitter Rules related to terrorism and impersonation.


We received four requests related to online gambling. One reported account belonged to an online casino website and another to online sports games website. As both accounts specifically targeted Russian users, they were suspended for violating Twitter’s TOS.

South Korea

With the volume of legal demands from South Korea increasing fivefold compared to the previous reporting period, we have seen an increase in various violations of the Twitter Rules . In addition, one request specified 70 accounts that were instigating users to commit suicide. All of these accounts were suspended for violating Twitter’s TOS.


A lawyer representing a media organization in Sweden submitted a legal demand about two Tweets containing an image with an alleged death threat to a Swedish journalist. The image also depicted Sweden's current and former prime ministers. The content was removed for violating Twitter’s TOS.


Among the 6,544 accounts reported, we removed some content on 2,157 accounts due to TOS violations covering terrorism, impersonation, and abusive behavior. In response to a court order filed by Turkuvaz Media Group, one of the biggest Turkish media companies, 21 accounts were suspended for impersonating the company’s TV channels and newspapers.

No action

This section includes instances where, in response to a legal demand, no accounts or Tweets were withheld nor were any removed due to TOS violations. Generally, we do not take action on newsworthy content or political speech protected under UN-recognized principles of free expression consistent with Twitter values.



Twitter received a legal demand regarding two Tweets on the basis of encouraging a criminal offense. The reported Tweets contained videos of an animal rights activist group allegedly stealing animals from a slaughterhouse. The reported user was notified about the request, but no action was taken based on concerns about undue censorship.


Accounts specified by legal demands increased by nearly 88% compared to the previous reporting period. The majority of requests submitted concerned criticism of the state apparatus and speech targeting Islam. Based on the political nature of the reported content, no action was taken.


The verified account of the United Kingdom National Lottery was the subject of a removal demand from Roskomnadzor under law 244-FZ related to gambling. Given the account focused on the lottery of another country and was not directed towards Russian users, no action was taken.

We repeatedly received legal demands from Russia about six Twitter accounts for allegedly spreading information considered extremist materials by Roskomnadzor. We also received removal demands referencing the “March of Millions” demonstrations that were scheduled for December 15, 2017 in Russia. No action was taken in response to either situation.


We received 27 court orders from the chairman of one of the largest food manufacturers of Europe and the Middle East, due to an alleged violation of personal rights. We did not take any action in response to 15 court orders, either because the content was political or the fact that the users had already deleted the content.

Reports based on local law(s)

This new section includes removal requests from trusted reporters and non-governmental organizations identified by the European Commission (EC) that allege violations of local law(s).More details will be added in future reports.

All reported content is first reviewed for potential violations of Twitter's TOS and any content that is found to be violating is then removed from the platform. Content that does not violate Twitter's TOS is then reviewed for potential withholding based on the local law(s) of the reporting jurisdiction.

Reports based on local law(s) Jul 1 - Dec 31, 2017

Trusted reporters and non-governmental organizations

Broadly speaking, the organizations that submitted reports to us work on protecting and furthering human rights, and preventing issues such as racism, xenophobia, or homophobia. To date, Twitter has formed partnerships with trusted reporters from Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. In addition, the European Commission (EC) designated a number of other European NGOs to assist in evaluating industry implementation of the Code of Conduct on countering illegal online hate speech .

Out of the 1,661 reports received from trusted reporters and other EU NGOs, 19% resulted in content removal due to TOS violations and 10% in content being withheld in a particular country based on local law(s).

Nine accounts from verified journalists and news outlets were identified by trusted reporters in removal requests during this reporting period, exclusively submitted by French reporters. We found no violations of local laws and therefore did not take any action.



We withheld one Tweet in Belgium in response to a report from Unia based on Belgian laws covering discrimination targeting a protected category. More information can be found on Lumen .


We received a report from Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France (CRIF) about a Tweet from a verified United Nations specialized agency account. The Tweet referenced a Palestinian World Heritage site. We did not take action as no hate speech could be identified.

Another report from CRIF identified a Tweet in violation of the French law on the freedom of the press. We withheld the Tweet in France for minimizing the crimes of theNazi regime. More information can be found on Lumen .


One Tweet was reported by Jugendschutz.net for inciting hatred against Romani people. We withheld the Tweet in Germany for violating German law covering incitement to hatred. More information can be found on Lumen .


We withheld 16 Tweets in response to requests submitted by the National Office Against Racial Discrimination (UNAR) for discrimination against Muslims and foreigners. More information can be found on Lumen .


We withheld four Tweets in response to requests from the Spanish Observatory of Racism and Xenophobia (OBERAXE), relating to discriminatory content about Romani people. More information can be found on Lumen .


We may not comply with every request or all aspects of a request for a variety of reasons. For example, we do not comply with requests that fail to identify content on Twitter.
