BRUSSELS, Belgium (PNN) - May 28, 2023 - EU officials have been mega-triggered after Twitter decided to abandon the bloc's voluntary disinformation "code of practice" that other major platforms have pledged to support.
"You can run but you can’t hide," fascist European Commissioner Thierry Breton tweeted, ominously.
Twitter will be legally required to “fight disinformation” in the EU beginning August 25, referring to the Digital Services Act - a set of new social media rules that include fines of up to 6% of a company's annual revenue.
The code of practice on disinformation is a voluntary set of rules that includes the tracking of political advertising, stopping the monetization of disinformation (like COVID originating in a lab? Questions over vaccine efficacy? Hunter Biden's laptop? Masks? Joe Biden having 'probably inappropriate' showers with his daughter?).
Twitter is one of eight social media platforms that fall under the scope of the DSA - which includes Facebook, TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Snapchat.
Breton has threatened to personally hold Musk to account for failure to comply.
Ed. Note: This is what the fascists in the EU consider to be “voluntary compliance”. Either you voluntarily agree to do what we want, or we will force you to do it. I suggest that Elon Musk should tell the EU to shove it where the sun don’t shine. If they fine him then he should refuse to pay the fine. Perhaps it is time for anonymous individual to collect fascist Commissioner Breton and make him disappear forever. Just a thought.
