EU warns Musk that Twitter must obey disinfo rules

Europe’s top official for enforcing digital regulation warns Twitter boss Elon Musk that he must do more to fight disinformation in order to comply with EU law.

The EU commissioner for the internal market, Thierry Breton, held a video call with Musk and told him “there is still huge work ahead” to bring the platform in line with Brussels’ rules.

Breton posts a brief, silent video clip of his videoconference on Musk’s platform Twitter, but follows it up with a link to a longer statement on the rival Mastodon network.

“I welcome Elon Musk’s statements of intent to get Twitter 2.0 ready for the DSA,” Breton says, referring to the EU Digital Services Act, Brussels’ overarching internet law.

“But let’s also be clear that there is still huge work ahead,” he said.
