Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take down the page of a user who Williams said is using the social network to intimidate a witness, the Philadelphia Inquirer, among several other local news outlets, reported.
Williams sent a strongly-worded letter to Zuckerberg after his office sent multiple requests to Facebook to take the page down, the Inquirer reported.
“By ignoring our pleas and continuing to allow these images on your website, you are contributing to the culture of intimidation and fear that exist in this city, where witness intimidation permeates our neighborhoods and courtrooms,” Williams wrote. CBS Philly posted the letter here [pdf].
Both Twitter and Google have reported increases in government requests for removals, as well as data. Check out the Twitter Transparency Report and the Google Transparency Report. Facebook has not released a transparency report, as far as we can tell.-30-
