EU warns Elon Musk that Twitter must play by its tough new rules
Euronews says Twitter will have to “adapt completely to European rules” whatever Elon Musk’s intentions regarding freedom of speech, the European Commission warned on Tuesday.
The EU’s internal market commissioner Thierry Breton said the American social network, soon to be acquired by the billionaire entrepreneur, will have to comply with the EU’s Digital Services Act, reining in the power of big tech.
“Whether on online harassment, the sale of counterfeit products… child pornography, or calls for acts of terrorism… Twitter will have to adapt to our European regulations which do not exist in the United States,” EU commissioner Thierry Breton told AFP.
