Twitter has received high marks in a new report that rates tech companies on how how effectively they protect users from baseless copyright and trademark complaints.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)’s “Who Has Your Back” annual report awarded Twitter four out of a possible five stars, lauding the company for publishing regular and thorough transparency reports.
WordPress.com and NameCheap were the only two companies to receive five out of five stars.
“Major online platforms are essential to online expression, so their policy decisions can have a huge impact on public discourse,” said Corynne McSherry, EFF Intellectual Property Director. “As users choose which platforms will host their updates, writing, images, and videos, they ought to know which of these services have publicly committed to treating their speech fairly and even helping them fight back against bullies that would try to take it down.”
