#Twitter is expected to end its participation in the EU's code of practice of disinformation

Why we're here and not at the hellsite.

#Twitter is expected to end its participation in the EU's code of practice of disinformation in the coming days.

The code of practice is a voluntary rulebook that contains measures meant to counter online disinformation.

Twitter is on the verge of withdrawing from one of the Europe Union's efforts to stamp out disinformation.

In the coming days, the social networking giant, which is owned by Elon Musk, is expected to end its participation in the bloc's code of practice of disinformation, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter, who were granted anonymity to speak to discuss internal discussions between the company and the European Commission.

The code of practice is a voluntary rulebook that was revamped last year and includes obligations for companies like Twitter, Meta and Alphabet to track political advertising, stop the monetization of disinformation, and provide greater access to these platforms to outsiders. While not mandatory, companies' participation in the code was designed to help offset some of these firms' obligations within the separate, and mandatory, Digital Services Act ó new social media rules that include fines of up to 6 percent of a company's annual revenue.


Thierry Breton, Europe's internal markets commissioner, has publicly stated he would personally hold Musk to account for complying with the bloc's content rules, though Twitter's decision to withdraw from the code of practice on disinformation directly goes against that pledge.
