EU Issued a Yellow Card Warning to Twitter For Disinformation Reporting Effort

[b]● European Commission hit Twitter with a yellow card as its reported efforts failed to tackle disinformation.
● EU officials announced today that they will be looking into Twitter to try to have a good understanding of its approach to disinformation.
● According to the EU executive, the reports from Twitter were devoid of facts and did not have any information on commitments to give fact-checkers more power.[/b]

[i][c=666666]Today on Thursday, (Feb 9) the EU executive announced that Twitter’s submitted reports lacked facts on commitments to empower fact-checkers. (Representational)[/c][/i]


The EU’s executive announced today that almost 30 platforms including Google, Microsoft, TikTok, Twitch, Meta, and Twitter submitted reports to the EU meeting a deadline at the end of last month.

Per its first glance at all the submitted reports, the commission identified Twitter as providing the submission of the least substantial reports.

The companies submitted progress reports on their six-month compliance with an enhanced European Union (EU) code of practice on disinformation.

The reports contained data on the amount of advertising revenue that the businesses had averted from misinformation actors, the quantity or cost of political advertisements that were approved or denied, and instances of manipulative behavior that were detected.

The Digital Services Act, which allows regulators to penalize corporations up to 6% of their global turnover for breaches, and new online content regulations were linked by the European Commission last year.

Vera Jourova, the Commissioner for Values and Transparency identified Twitter for this criticism.
There is still no request for commitment found from Twitter.

Who appointed the EU as the internet police? “Disinformation” is anything they don’t like, even when it’s the truth.

Elon fired most of the staff responsible for giving that report (content moderation.) That’s not unexpected.

I thought specious information was Twitter's main reason to exist.

SW news? This is cool.
