A few days ago, the Commission warned Musk for spreading illegal content and misinformation about the Hamas-Israel war
Elon Musk is considering taking down X (formerly Twitter) in Europe, according to Insider and Reuters reports, as a “response” to the new EU DSA regulation for the platform, which sets rules to prevent the spread of harmful content , prohibiting or limiting user targeting practices, and sharing internal data with regulatory authorities.
According to Insider’s report, the platform probably violates the DSA as a few days ago the Commission warned Musk that it has indications of dissemination of illegal content and misinformation in X about the Hamas-Israel war.
In fact, if X does not comply with the regulations, the EU could impose tough penalties: up to 6% of the company’s global annual turnover and exclusion from the EU single market.

The “controversy” seems to have reached extremes and the billionaire owner of X has made discussions to remove the availability of the application in the EU or to “block” users from the European Union countries from accessing the platform.
