The EU on Tuesday said that Twitter must “quickly adapt” to its rules on content moderation after Elon Musk, who has been vocal about freedom of speech on the platform, agreed to buy the company for $44 billion.

What they’re saying: “Be it cars or social media, any company operating in Europe needs to comply with our rules — regardless of their shareholding,” Thierry Breton, the EU’s internal market commissioner, tweeted. “Mr Musk knows this well.”

  • Musk “is familiar with European rules on automotive, and will quickly adapt to the Digital Services Act,” he added.
  • “We welcome everyone. We are open but on our conditions. At least we know what to tell him: ‘Elon, there are rules. You are welcome but these are our rules. It’s not your rules which will apply here,'” Breton told the Financial Times.

State of play: Breton told FT that if Twitter’s board doesn’t comply with the EU’s regulations, there will be sanctions: “6% of the revenue and, if they continue, banned from operating in Europe.”
