(Reuters) – The European Union has threatened Elon Musk’s Twitter with a ban unless the billionaire abides by its strict rules on content moderation, setting up a regulatory battle over the future of the social media platform, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.
EU industry chief Thierry Breton made the threat during a video meeting with Musk on Wednesday, the FT reported, citing people with knowledge of the conversation.
Breton told Musk he must adhere to a checklist of rules, including ditching an “arbitrary” approach to reinstating banned users and agreeing to an “extensive independent audit” of the platform by next year, according to the report.
Once again, if twatter censorship was simply made objective, that would be a huge win for us. If Musk went ahead and actually gave everyone who had been censored their account back, that would be great. It would be funny if the EU got so assblasted over Musk that they demanded policies that would actually help us, but I find this unlikely to work out in practice.
[EU Industry Chief] Breton had previously urged Musk to comply with landmark EU rules against online hate speech and disinformation. The European Commission’s justice chief Didier Reynders had also voiced similar comments.
In other words, they’re assblasted at Musk for potentially letting the goy-peasants actually speak their minds. That’s the shot here, obvious though it is. So no, they don’t care about Musk arbitrarily letting certain people back on twatter, other than that it’s a vehicle for them to attack him. They’re angry that he’s letting anyone back on twatter.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk promoted a series of tweets on Friday revealing internal documents about how the company handled a news article about Hunter Biden in 2020, controversially blocking people from tweeting and direct-messaging about it.
In a lengthy tweet thread, writer Matt Taibbi said he received “thousands of internal documents” from sources at Twitter — and Musk himself tweeted “Here we go!! 🍿🍿” when the thread began. NBC News has not seen or verified those files.
The thread came after Musk teased that past inner workings of Twitter would be exposed. On Monday, he said the “Twitter Files on free speech suppression” would soon be published, adding that the public has a right to know about past discussions there.
The twitter files on free speech suppression, eh? That’s funny because less than 48 hours ago this overweight fraud censored Kanye West for the following tweet.
But I’m sure the cuckservative faggots who made a big deal out of looking at Hunter Biden’s penis are going to be positively ecstatic.
Taibbi’s characterization of the documents amounted to a sharp criticism of how Twitter’s previous management — before Musk bought it in October for $44 billion — handled the situation and ran the company, alleging without clear evidence that it was biased toward Democrats.
Yeah I can’t believe how biased towards DEMONrats twitter higher ups were before Musk took over. It’s those ebil DEMONrats who are responsible for Republicans getting BTFO’d in the 2022 midterms, and Orange Faggot losing bigly in 2020. Those goddamn DEMONrats who forced Republicans to run Herschel Walker for senate. God I really wish those DEMONrats would stop doing that.
But seriously, who cares? Even if I was actually invested in Paul Singer’s GOP, everyone knows that these pathetic bitches aren’t going to do anything about it anyway. They’ll just whine impotently and then do nothing. They’ll do that because Republicans are just as corrupt as “muh DEMONrats,” and in bed with exactly the same people. So spare me the effort of even pretending to care.
