Twitter has announced that it is withdrawing from the European code of “good practice” against misinformation on the Internet.
The European Union may ban the social network Twitter if it does not comply with new rules to combat disinformation, which will come into force on August 25. France’s Minister for Digital Transition and Telecommunications, Jean-Noel Barraud, said on air by francetvinfo.
As you know, the social network owned by billionaire Elon Musk has announced that it has withdrawn from the European code of “good practice” against misinformation on the Internet.
From August 25, the Digital Services Act will come into force in the EU, designed to force platforms to combat disinformation. The law provides for mandatory removal of illegal content and a ban on advertising targeted at minors. Platforms that do not comply with these rules risk fines of up to 6% of turnover.
“I want Twitter to start complying with these rules in Europe on August 25, otherwise its presence in Europe will no longer be desirable. The platform will be banned in the European Union if repeated violations are found, Barro said.
Remember that new features will be added to Twitter – calls and encrypted messages coming to the platform. And in WhatsApp messenger, the ability to edit messages has been added.
