It also focuses on the Digital Services Act (DSA), one of the EU’s projects.
Elon Musk, EU Commissioner on ‘same page’
Thierry Breton posted a video online, and it shows both himself and Tesla CEO and multi-tech owner, Elon Musk, as they discuss the future of Twitter and what will happen in the coming months. It shows that both entities are entering the discussion to take their social media to greater heights and align their goals.
Musk followed with a tweet saying that they are on the same page and that their meeting went “great”. It just means that both executives are working together for Twitter’s progress. It will give them more for the upcoming social media restructuring for a better future, in line with the goals of what the EU wants for its region.

Twitter content regulation under DSA?
One of the focuses of the Breton and Musk meeting is Twitter’s content regulation under the DSA, with the new ban under the European Union having a fierce grip on everything that comes and goes. However, it would be a long and voluminous process over the coming months and years, especially as it would focus on restructuring Twitter from its previous setup.
Elon Musk and Twitter
Twitter and its new private owner, Elon Musk, have come a long way since their inception, from the CEO’s use of the platform to market his many companies including Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Co., Neuralink and more. Now he owns the platform and is the single largest stakeholder in the company, with a massive $44 billion stake, not counting his initial 9.2 percent share of social media.
An essential part of Musk’s campaign on Twitter, however, is freedom of expression for all parties, and it wouldn’t be a barrier across the different spectrum of the social media world. This campaign means there would be a “more free” experience on Twitter, as long as it doesn’t violate any laws that people will face once it’s restructured.
Now Musk and Twitter are coming together for a single purpose and the freedom of expression that would be available to all users from all parts of the world. In addition, it gained a higher platform as it aligns its ideologies with the DSA, one of the most controversial laws in the EU that Apple and Google have gotten their hands on because of the strict regulations and observations of its policies.
