The EU official overseeing internet regulation on Friday warned new Twitter boss Elon Musk the social media giant must play by the bloc's rules in Europe, according to AFP.
"In Europe, the bird will fly by our (EU) rules," EU internal market commissioner Thierry Breton tweeted, in response to Musk writing that "the bird is freed."
This came after the American billionaire Elon Musk completed the acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion.
After the deal was completed, Musk quickly fired Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and the Head of Legal, Policy and Trust Vijaya Gadde, whom he accused of being misleading regarding the number of spam accounts on the platform.
However, neither Twitter nor Musk, nor the executives, responded to AFP when asked to comment on the issue.
