EU industry chief Thierry Breton will meet with Tesla chief Elon Musk in Texas on Monday to discuss global supply chain issues and the bloc’s new rules requiring technology giants to do more to control online content, a spokesman said. of Breton.

The meeting comes weeks after the world’s richest man struck a deal to buy social media company Twitter for $ 44 billion (approximately 3.40,400 kroner) in cash.

The two will meet at 19:00 GMT (12:30 pm IST on Tuesday) in Austin, where the new headquarters of the electric car manufacturer Musk Tesla is located.

“Technology and supply chains will be at the top of Tesla’s agenda with Elon Musk,” Terence Zack, a spokesman for Breton, said in an email.

“Freedom of speech will also be on the menu between Thierry Breton and Elon Musk. This will be the EU regulation. Expect an exchange of the Digital Services Act and how the “new” Twitter will play by European rules, “he said.

Musk secured a deal to buy Twitter last month, promising to revive the company and expand the number of users by cracking down on spam bots and reducing the amount of moderation to facilitate more “freedom of speech.”

The billionaire’s comments sparked a response from Breton that Twitter must comply with new EU rules, known as the Digital Services Act, to tackle illegal online content.

In his latest Twitter message, Tesla’s CEO and founder of SpaceX said he would significantly raise Twitter’s work ethic standards once it officially acquires the social media platform.

“Expectations of work ethic would be extreme, but much less than I demand of myself,” Musk said on Twitter on Friday.

The company will be “super focused on hardcore software engineering, design, information security and server hardware,” he added.

Musk has previously said he would like to revolutionize Twitter’s role in public debate, as “freedom of speech is the foundation of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital city square where issues vital to the future of humanity are discussed.”
