Man who set himself on fire in New York dies Man who set himself on fire in New York dies

Thierry Breton, member of the EU Commission responsible for digital services, sent a letter to Elon Musk, owner of the X platform, formerly Twitter.

Sharing his letter from the X platform, Breton stated in his letter that there are indications that the X platform is being used to spread illegal content and misinformation in the EU following the attack on Israel by the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.

Breton reminded that the EU's Digital Services Act (DSA) imposes strict obligations on content, including that certain violent or terrorist content must be removed as a result of warnings from the relevant authorities, and that they have not been removed despite warnings from the relevant authorities.

Breton also noted that there have been reports of a large number of false and manipulated images and information being disseminated on the X platform, including images that have nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, old images and even fragments of computer games.

Breton therefore requested that the X platform take the necessary measures and provide his team with information about this, that X officials be in contact with Europol and relevant law enforcement agencies, and that requests be responded to quickly.

Breton said, "I ask you to provide a prompt, accurate and complete response to this request within the next 24 hours. We will add your response to our assessment file on your compliance with the DSA. I remind you that penalties may be imposed following the opening of a possible investigation and the detection of non-compliance."
