Musk Has to Add Twitter Moderators in Europe, Commissioner Says
Elon Musk will have to increase the number of Twitter moderators in Europe, according to Thierry Breton, the EU's internal market commissioner.
“He is in the process of reducing a certain number of moderators, but he will have to increase them in Europe,” Breton told Franceinfo in an interview. “He will have to open his algorithms. We will have control, we will have access, people will no longer be able to say rubbish.”
Breton earlier warned that Twitter would have to “fly by our rules,” shortly after Musk closed his $44 billion takeover last month.
Breton said he had proposed establishing a “working relationship” with Musk to discuss Europe's expectations of the social media platform. “He knows perfectly well what the conditions are for Twitter to continue operating in Europe,” Breton said.
