The European Union expressed concern about the policy of Twitter

The European Union is concerned about Twitter’s layoffs and the social network’s declining control of inappropriate content, Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders said following talks at the social network’s headquarters in Dublin.

“During the meeting at Twitter Headquarters, I stressed that we expect voluntary commitments regarding compliance with the Digital Services Act and the EU Privacy Regulation to be met,” – Reynders said in a message on this social network.

Earlier, the EU published a report according to which Twitter and other social networks have significantly reduced the consideration of notifications about the publication of incitement to violence and hatred in accordance with EU rules in this area.

In addition, according to the Financial Times, the social network closed its representative office in Brussels after employees responsible for Twitter’s content compliance with European rules resigned from it.

After acquisition Elon Musk online platforms in October 2022 for $ 44 billion Twitter is being pursued by a series of changes in both the management of the company and the policies of the social network itself.

Musk promised to liberalize the editorial policy of the social network, which was widely criticized for severe censorship, and create a content moderation council, and until the council works, do not make global decisions about editorial policy and the restoration of blocked accounts. Musk also warned that the social network “is going to do a lot of stupid things” in the near future. The company intends to “keep what works and change what doesn’t work.”

The European Commission said it is monitoring developments around Twitter and is considering other possible channels for sharing information.
