A straightforward look at some of the data available through Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, and Wikimedia transparency reports. China is notably missing from the #1 spot because they tend not to go through official channels for content removal — they just block access to these services altogether or things they don’t want people to see.

Article breakdown available here (note: I did the vizzes, but not the written piece) Certainly some better ways to visualize this. Would love to see some remixes. Can share a copy of the Docs spreadsheet if anyone would like to use it for remixing.
