Published

on

Twitter is witnessing an increasing number of government requests for data involving user accounts.

The company released its latest transparency report, which aims to help consumers better understand tweet removal requests and copyright notices as well as government information requests. With each report, the number of government requests continues to rise, and the US government continues to make more requests than any other government.

This is the drawback of using social networks and other online services. The information you share can come back to haunt you. In most of the requests the IP logins tops the requests.

Kenya tops the list of African Governments Seeking closure on users. This is done through the National Intelligence Service should that have a criminal case against a user to pursue. Here’s the graphical representation of the requests posted by GoK. Despite the requests, Twitter in the last 6 months granted the GoK access to either of the accounts they asked for.

Scientists have tested money and phones from 395 food handlers in 15 different types of outlets in Nairobi County and confirmed the two items to be highly-tainted with disease-causing germs.

The researchers collected money from the food handlers in every denomination of the Kenya’s currency.

The money underwent through a thorough test for eight types of Disease Causing Organisms.

All of the tests confirmed positive of the DCOs. Of these, 20 per cent were food-borne pathogens.

The Sh 50 and Sh 20 denominations were the most tainted. Researchers believe that it’s because they have a possible wide supply and circulation. With Sh 1, 5 and 1000 being the least contaminated.

Staphylococcus species of germs that have been medically proven to cause skin, heart and bone infections, food poisoning and pneumonia were mostly present to all the denominations.

Bacillus species of pathogens were also present. The pathologist say these may cause food poisoning, shock, meningitis and blood poisoning.

E coli was also present on coins. The contaminant is usually from human Feaces. The contaminant is the root cause of most of urinary tract infections.

Phones were also tested and confirmed to be contaminated with 12 types of pathogens.

Staphylococcus,E coli, Pseudomonus and Klebsiella species were the most common.

The study reports that over 60% of people don’t wash their hands and an equivalent of 34% had no knowledge of food handling.

Cryptosporidium parasites were also present on the coins. These parasites causes serious diarrhoea in children.

Independent medical researchers have refuted KEMRIs studies saying the germs present on coins and notes are less harmful.

While KEMRI says some types of parasites found on the coins, especially from butchers are contaminated with Zonootics.

This disease can be transmitted from animals to human.
