Is X Our Last Line of Defense in the Fight for Free Thought and Speech?

The European Union (an unelected body) has officially launched an investigation into Elon Musk’s social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), for its alleged role in disseminating illegal content and disinformation.

E.U. Commissioner Thierry Breton revealed the news via a post on X, marking the commencement of formal infringement proceedings against the platform. The investigation is centered around accusations of X’s failure to comply with its obligations to counter illegal content, disinformation, and transparency obligations, as well as alleged deceptive design of its user interface.

This probe is notably the first of its kind since the implementation of the EU’s Digital Services Act (DSA) in August. The DSA, which imposes stringent regulations on online platforms serving over 45 million active monthly users in the EU, already impacts major platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat, TikTok, YouTube, Bing, and Google.

The EU classified X as a Very Large Online Platform (VLOP) in April 2023, following X’s declaration of having 112 million monthly active users in the region. The DSA’s mandate is to curb illegal and harmful online activities, particularly the spread of disinformation.

A focal point of the EU’s inquiry will be X’s handling of content related to Hamas’ terrorist activities against Israel and the effectiveness of its measures to prevent information manipulation. The probe will scrutinize X’s transparency efforts and the design of its user interface, particularly concerning the platform’s “Community Notes” feature and the distribution of ‘Blue check’ marks, which are now available to all users for a monthly subscription fee.

X has previously submitted a risk assessment report to the EU and responded to requests for information, indicating its commitment to compliance with the DSA. However, this formal investigation, which involves information requests, interviews, and inspections, is not bound by any legal deadline.

E.U. Commissioner Breton emphasized the end of an era where big online platforms could act with impunity, stating that the DSA’s clear rules, oversight, and enforcement mechanisms will protect citizens and democracies. X’s head of business operations, Joe Benarroch, responded by reaffirming the platform’s dedication to complying with the DSA, maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for users, and upholding freedom of expression.

Like Alex Jones, many believe this attack on X is the last stand between the globalist agenda to silence the population and freedom of speech.

The EU’s inquiry into X is just the latest chapter in the ongoing battle for free speech on a global scale. Throughout history, governments and organizations have sought to regulate and control the flow of information, often citing concerns over public safety and national security. The rise of digital platforms and social media has only amplified this debate, as these platforms have become essential tools for communication and the exchange of ideas.

The EU’s inquiry into X represents a critical moment in this ongoing struggle. The outcome of this investigation could have far-reaching implications for the future of free speech and the role of digital platforms in shaping the global conversation.

  1. The global elite are trying to suppress free speech and the free exchange of ideas. The EU lackey’s have no right to oppress free speech and no authority to stop it. It’s an abomination and the people of Europe should rise up and oppose such draconian actions. I’m appalled that they would even try such dictatorial measures. Fight back people of Europe and demand that the EU stop it’s oppression of free speech.
    As Ben Frannklin said,” Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

  2. This is why we have no business being part of NATO The only thing NATO wants us for is the money they get to protect themselves We have no interest to do any battles there We certainly do not need to continue these huge amounts of tax dollars they receive from us This is not freedom what they are doing So we must stop supporting them with our tax dollars the arrogant ungrateful group They are the new Nazi This is just the beginning for them How could they give up their rights of individual countries I would have to tell them no If you let this stand then what will be next If they profess to be free countries then they should tell these folks to go pound sand with their Nazi like control Stop them before they get started Remind every policeman countries military that they and your family are going through this You can’t support that So don’t support them and they can’t do anything Then take that power away from them What they can do is make suggestions nothing more This is a controlled power play for 2 reasons first to begin taking away your freedom and second to show that they can do what they want to do with your personal life
