After a dispute over the monitoring of Twitter’s content within the bloc, Elon Musk has disbanded Twitter’s entire Brussels office.
According to the Financial Times, Julia Mozer, and Dario La Naaa who managed Twitter’s European digital policy, have left the company.
Executives were instrumental in bringing the company into compliance with the EU’s Digital Services Act, which was passed last week and set new standards for Big Tech companies to protect users online.
Others had already left the Brussels office at the beginning of the month, as Musk fired half the employees. The number of employees dropped from 7,500 to 3,750 within a few weeks of his £38bn acquisition.
After completing the acquisition of SpaceX, the Tesla and SpaceX chief executive tweeted that “the birds are freed”.
Shortly thereafter, Thierry Breton, European Commissioner, issued a curt reminder about the EU’s content moderation laws. He stated: “In Europe, the bird will fly according to our rules.”
Musk stated that Twitter’s recent series of layoffs had ended this week as he launched a recruitment campaign.
