Musk’s X is the biggest purveyor of disinformation, EU official says

LONDON (AP) — A top European Union official said Tuesday that the social network X, formerly known as Twitter, is the biggest source of fake news and urged owner Elon Musk to comply with the bloc’s laws aimed at combating disinformation.



The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, released a study of six online platforms in Poland, Slovakia and Spain that found Twitter had the highest prevalence of disinformation and biggest ratio of disinformation actors.

“Twitter has the highest discoverability” of disinformation, the report said.

Jourova warned Musk that “he is not off the hook” just because his company dropped out of the code. The code has been incorporated into a strict new set of mandatory European regulations known as the Digital Services Act, which subjects the biggest online platforms, including X, to the highest level of scrutiny.

Now, “there are obligations given by the hard law, so my message for Twitter is: ‘You have to comply with the hard law, and we will be watching what you are doing,’” she said.

Under the code, online platforms agree to commit to measures aimed at reducing disinformation and have to file reports on a regular basis.

After submitting “ baseline” reports, their first six-month reports outlining how they’re living up to those promises were released Tuesday.

While the EU politicians wants to regulate what can be said online, the mainstream media and politicians in the West has flooded the internet, newspapers and TV with disinformation and lies about Russia and the war in Ukraine. The conclusion is that they only want their narrative (and lies) to be accessible for the public. Other voices, opinions and disstenters shall be silenced.

jergul is correct.

Still ... can't "x", won't "x", so I have no idea what is in that xit that the address doesn't reveal.

"They banned me"

Imagine being so enraged at the prospect of an African American entrepreneur acquiring a social media company in order to preserve freedom of speech on the internet that you provoked them into banning you.

The left no longer having a monopoly on social media ownership has triggered the fuck out of you.

What did you post to get the ban btw? I'm sure it was something totally reasonable and SFW.

Lol. "They banned me". The social media platform that is hated by the left for allowing Hate speech banned you? What a fucking self fail on the part of murder. How old are you again? Do you have any semblance of shame? You realize X is seen by the world so you should probably conduct yourself with some scrutiny?

Ignoring the laughable suggestion that Elon Musk is any sort of defender of free speech ... I was banned ~ 2 1/2 years ago.

True, Musk still needs to un-ban Alex Jones, and Ye should be allowed to post the Raëlian symbol. I'm glad murder stands up for these values.


"I banned "x" when Elon took over."

What an absolute faggot.

Elon is definitley far more pro free speech than current dem-elite/most rank and file social media workers and such.

No one wants absolute anarchy anyway, when we do, there is/was 4chan.

Atleast NPR left in disgrace.

I am not in the business of defending billionaires, he can do that himself. But the reaction towards Musk, by the cult of lunatics, is just one of those things that is difficult to not opine on. His haters "just happened" to be *all* the people whose craziness I had been confronting for the last 15 years. And they were being crazier and more out of control deranged than ever.

And to answer the original prompt, just check one of many of Nhil's cryptoscam spam posts from the last 2 years before he "mysteriously" disappeared when crypto crashed.

All you need is some dumbass with an axe to grind online and you will draw in a bunch of other dumbasses who sees the agreement of other dumbasses as proof of something as real.

See Nimatzo and his fellating Nhil for crypto trade advice and Cherub ignoring her own miserable life by finding some narrative that blames a giant conspiracy.

In other news, the senile idiot's government has now launched its fourth (fourth!) investigation against Elon.

Refusing to toe the party line when Democrats are in power is dangerous. These are the same people who are hilariously claiming that they are "saving" American democracy.
