The EU warns Elon Musk that Twitter could be banned if it doesn’t comply with content moderation laws: FT

Elon Musk completed his acquisition of Twitter in October.
A high-ranking EU official told Twitter CEO Musk the platform must comply with content moderation laws, per the FT.
Twitter faces an EU-wide ban or fine if it breaches the EU’s law, commissioner Thierry Breton warned.
Musk told Breton repeatedly that he thought the EU’s Digital Services Act was “very sensible.”

The European Union has warned Elon Musk Twitter could be banned from operating in the bloc unless the social media platform adheres to its content moderation regulations, the Financial Times reported Wednesday.

Thierry Breton, the European Union’s commissioner for the internal market, was on a video call with the Twitter CEO when he gave the warning, the FT reported, citing people with knowledge of the discussion.

Breton tweeted about his call with Musk on Wednesday, saying there’s still “huge work ahead.”
