These few months, Dataminr has provided government with alerts that include Twitter handles of those posting messages about protest plans or where activists are blocking streets, according to reports.

Twitter on the other hsnd said it has audited Dataminr’s suite of products and found no violation of its ban on surveillance.

One of twitter’s spokesman said thus;

“We proactively enforce our policies to ensure customers are in compliance and will continue to do so,”

“We consistently hold ourselves accountable to rigorous standards, including third-party audits of key products and services like Dataminr.”
