Twitter has decided to withdraw from the European Union’s voluntary Code of Practice against disinformation. However, the platform must still tackle the spread of false information under the Digital Services Act (#DSA) starting August 25. This means Twitter must take necessary measures to prevent misleading content on its platform.
Twitter leaves EU voluntary Code of Practice against disinformation.
But obligations remain. You can run but you can’t hide.
Beyond voluntary commitments, fighting disinformation will be legal obligation under #DSA as of August 25.
Our teams will be ready for enforcement.

Twitter has committed to adhering to these new regulations. The company stated, “You can run but you can’t hide.” Despite Twitter’s decision to step away from the voluntary code, users can still expect the platform to actively combat disinformation and safeguard the integrity of information shared on its network.
