The European Union has threatened Twitter owner Elon Musk, with a ban on the platform unless it adheres to its strict rules on content moderation.
European Commissioner for Market Affairs Thierry Breton said, in a video call with Musk, that Twitter must adhere to a list of rules, including abandoning the “arbitrary” approach to reinstating banned user accounts and agreeing to a “comprehensive independent audit” of the platform by next year.
This came, according to what the British newspaper “Financial Times” quoted, according to people familiar with the conversation between Proton and Musk, today, Wednesday.
Bruton has previously urged Musk to comply with the EU’s historic rules against hate speech and misinformation online.
