X Takes Swift Action in Response to EU’s Request, Removes Hundreds of Hamas-Affiliated Accounts

Published on

In response to European Union industry chief Thierry Breton’s ultimatum, X CEO Linda Yaccarino has announced the removal of hundreds of accounts associated with Hamas. The European Union had given Elon Musk a 24-hour deadline to address concerns of “disinformation” on the social media platform.

In a letter addressed to EU Commissioner Breton, Yaccarino emphasized X’s commitment to promptly respond to law enforcement requests from global authorities, including EU member states.

Proactive Measures Against Conflict-Related Content

The CEO’s letter detailed the proactive steps taken by X, including the removal or labeling of “tens of thousands of pieces of content” related to the ongoing conflict. Yaccarino stated, “Since the terrorist attack on Israel, we have taken action to remove or label tens of thousands of pieces of content.”

Crisis Response Efforts

Furthermore, X highlighted its crisis response efforts. “Shortly after the news broke about the Hamas attack, X assembled a leadership group to assess the situation,” Yaccarino wrote. The platform reiterated its mission to facilitate public conversation, provide access to and sharing of information, raise awareness about ongoing events, and enable open and free exchange of ideas during critical situations.

This swift response demonstrates X’s commitment to addressing concerns and maintaining a responsible and secure online environment.
