Engadget: Reddit law enforcement requests have tripled in two years

Engadget: Reddit law enforcement requests have tripled in two years. “Reddit has just released its 2016 Transparency Report showing how many times US and foreign governments or law enforcement demanded private user information. Given its size (274 million users) the site is a pretty decent ‘canary in the coalmine’ for privacy and government overreach. If so, governments are getting more nosy: Reddit said it fielded 170 requests for account information, over triple the 55 it received in 2014, the year of its first transparency report.”
