Twitter has abandoned the EU's code of practice on disinformation, but the EU's internal markets commissioner, Thierry Breton, insists that obligations remain for the social networking giant.
The code of practice is a voluntary rulebook that includes obligations for platforms to track political advertising, stop the monetization of disinformation, and provide greater access to outsiders.
Participation in the code is designed to help offset some of these companies' obligations within the separate and mandatory DSA, which includes fines of up to 6 percent of a company's annual revenue.
Twitter is one of eight social media platforms that fall under the scope of the DSA.
The commissioner has publicly vowed to hold Elon Musk
, the owner of Twitter, accountable for complying with the EU's content rules.
