Elon Musk’s actions on Twitter since he took over the social network have been overtly controversial. Musk said that he will start allowing hate speech, which will violate a new EU rule known as DSA the “Digital Services Act.” The EU on November 30 warned him of a potential Twitter ban if he implements his plan. He will now understand that bans work both ways, and the EU is intent to show him that he will not replace governments with Twitter.

Introduced on November 16, DSA requires tech companies and digital platforms (the likes of Twitter and Facebook and even small firms and porn sites) to ban hate speech and ads targeting people based on political beliefs. Taking effect in the summer of 2023, the law empowers the EU to fine violators and even prohibit big tech firms from operating across its region if necessary. Replying to the EU warning, Elon Musk said that his new business would comply with applicable law. Will Elon step down? Stay tuned!
