The My old ABC 'alma mater' reporting my views on the risks to freedom of expression posed by threats from Australian politicians to increase the policing of Twitter trolls. Evidently, my old colleagues 97.3 ABC Illawarra miss me - they have me both as a PhD student @ University of Wollongong (correct) and a UOW lecturer (I work for University of Canberra, of course) :)

Australian police confirm that Twitter has agreed to hand over users' data to all Australian law enforcement agencies investigating serious (i.e. where imminent risk exists, including self-harm) trolling cases - without a court order.

I held the same view initially, Crag. But then I tried to get information out of Twitter and met obfuscation & my interest was piqued. That's never a good strategy. I want more detail from Twitter about how and when they deal directly with international law enforcement/governments. The letter of the policies may not have changed (Twitter maintains it hasn't but I'm still waiting for answers to my questions about whether Twitter has previously handed over data to Australian investigations in serious trolling cases without a court order. And it would be negligent in reporting this issue not to ask about the implications of changes to the edges of policy.

There is a lack of clarity and transparency around what Twitter accepts as evidence of 'imminent risk'. For example, does incitement to self harm (e.g. #diecharlotte) constitute justification for handing over users' data to police without a court order if the targetted party threatens to suicide?

I'm not alone in being concerned about broader implications for Internet freedom & privacy regarding Twitter's data handover practices - international agencies & activists are mulling these issues too.

Similarly, I think there's an important debate to be had in Australia about political/government responses vis privacy/internet freedom, so coverage that highlights these issues is necessary (as opposed to tabloid fear-mongering).

All of the above notwithstanding, I think I was pretty clear in this article that the Daily Telegraph's coverage was hugely problematic - ditto the political response.

Cheers,

Jp
