Noch 6 Tag zum Prozesstermin gegen Twitter. Wir tragen vor zu den aktuellen Entwicklungen und Entscheidungen von Elon Musk und Twitter müsste substantiiert vortragen, wollte es den Vortrag nicht zugestehen. Das gibt uns d seltene Gelegenheit, paar Fakten gerichtlich feststellen:
...zu lassen. Mag jemand ergänzen?
1. Twitter betreibt Content-Moderation alleine über Algorithmen
2. Twitters Recht, Compliance und Security ist führungslos und derzeit unbesetzt.
3. Twitter löscht legale Inhalte willkürlich und schaltet sie nach Beschwerdefax wieder frei.
4. Das Gegenvorstellungsverfahren nach § 3b NetzDG wurde nicht eingeführt, weil man darauf vertrauen durfte, dass die Behörde dies bis zur Einführung #DSA hinnehmen würde.
5. Strafbare Inhalte werden entgegen § 3 NetzDG nicht angezeigt.

Social media platforms will no longer behave like they are “too big to care”.
 
Whether they have feathers or not 🐦

As #DSA enters into force today, these are the 4️⃣ steps ahead for digital platforms to comply with our 🇪🇺 rules

🧵 Image
1⃣ Transparency on numbers 👀
 
By 17 February 2023, online platforms will have to report the number of their active end users.

Based on these numbers, we will assess if they are:

✔️Very Large Online Platforms
#VLOPs

✔️Very Large Online Search Engines #VLOSEs
2⃣ Comply AND explain 🔎

Once designed as such, these very large entities will have 4 months to comply with the obligations under the DSA.

Notably on content #moderation and #risk assessments.

The Commission will thoroughly examine this compliance starting summer 2023.

Zeit für die nächste Mindmap-Auskoppelung:

#DSA und der #Datenschutz

Bekanntlich lässt der DSA ja die #DSGVO unberührt ("without prejudice"). Aber: Es wimmelt im DSA nur so von datenschutzrelevanten Regelungen. Fangen wir mit den Rechtsgrundlagen an:

DSGVO lila↙️ DSA gelb↘️ Image
#DSA und der #Datenschutz

DSA enthält DatenverarbeitungsVERBOTE, durch die Rechtsgrundlagen der #DSGVO (insbes. #Einwilligung, #Vertrag und #berechtigtesInteresse) ausgeschlossen werden.

DSA enthält DatenverarbeitungsGEBOTE, also rechtliche Verpflichtungen zur Verarbeitung pbD.
Der #DSA nimmt insbesondere Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c #DSGVO für datenschutzrechtliche Regelungen in Anspruch:

dsgvo-gesetz.de/art-6-dsgvo/

Anders sind mE die zahlreichen Verpflichtungen des DSA jedenfalls nicht zu erfüllen👇 Image

Ihr kommt mit dem Lesen von #DSGVO-Texten nicht hinterher? Dann kennt Ihr den #DSA noch nicht…

Mit 459.335 Zeichen noch umfangreicher als die DSGVO mit ihren 393.583 Zeichen.

Aber! Was Ihr noch nicht wisst! Wir dürfen noch viel mehr Texte lesen. Denn👇

9 mai 2022, Thierry Breton se rend en personne à Austin au Texas pour rencontrer Elon Musk dans son usine Tesla. Le souhait de Musk de racheter Twitter n'agite pas que le réseau social.
Après un entretien privé, une courte vidéo est enregistrée. Image
Breton s'adresse à Musk sur un ton très professoral malgré une certaine bonhommie. Il semble lui avoir rappelé les règles européennes de régulation concernant Twitter. Musk, affable, acquiesce.
4 octobre 2022, après quelques turpitudes, Musk relance son offre d'achat de 44 Milliards de $.
Le 28 octobre, c'est par ce message laconique qu'il dévoile la conclusion : " l'oiseau est libéré "

(1/9) Today, my fellow Nobel laureate #dmitrymuratov and I are proud to launch an action plan to tackle the information crisis unleashed by Big Tech & rebuild independent journalism. Here’s why:
(2/9) The huge potential of technology to advance our societies has been hijacked by #BigTech and a business model that deliberately promotes hate & hate & lies for profit.
(3/9) This is an existential threat to democracy & peace. For facts to stand a chance, we must end the amplification of disinformation by tech platforms and invest in journalism as the antidote to tyranny.

1/5 @Europarl_EN approved the #DigitalServicesAct with 539 votes in favour. EDRi welcomes DSA’s attempt to enable a real transformation of online advertising industry, away from cheating & spying on users & towards a safer, privacy-respecting ad ecosystem. edri.org/our-work/the-d…
2/5 “The DSA offers the much-needed tools to enforce platform accountability, but we will continue to call and work for regulatory alternatives to address the currently dominant surveillance business model,” says @edri's @sebabecks. edri.org/our-work/the-d…
3/5 This is the result of continuous advocacy & campaigning efforts by the @EDRi network & many partners to push for stronger #DigitalRights rules.

🎉BIG thanks to EDRi members & allies for their work that has brought us one step closer to inclusive & equitable online spaces.

#DSA - Et Voila – finally a 600pages document for the final draft oft he #DSA (Trilogue settled version + technical amnds) has found its way to the public.

@TspBackgroundDi and there tech-expert @Torbatschow reports about it.

Now finally we can look at details!

long thread 1/X
Overall impression: Council position prevailed in many instances over EP (good!)

After looking at the document, here my 50cent on points that I found still unclear after the Trilogue so far (will leave out points clear from press releases – this here for afficionados):

Recital 13: cloud and technical web hosting out of the DSA!? „cloud computing ... and web hosting ... when serving as infrastructure, such as the underlining infrastructural ... services ... should not in themselves be considered as disseminating to the public …“

Nun ist es raus. Die EU-Kommission hat ihren Entwurf einer VO zur Verhinderung und Bekämpfung von Kindesmissbrauch veröffentlicht, dadurch soll die #InterimsVO vom letzten Jahr abgelöst werden. @twidlok wagt für LOAD einen hot take auf die Inhalte und eine erste Bewertung. (1/x)
Direkt im ersten Artikel wird festgelegt, um was es gehen soll. Alle Anbieter von Hosting Services, Internet Access, #Messenger und App Stores sollen zunächst Risiken durch die missbräuchliche Verwendung ihrer Angebote für Kindesmissbrauch im Netz erkennen und minimieren. (2/x)
Hosting Services und Messenger haben zusätzlich „reporting“ Pflichten und können zur „detection“ verpflichtet werden. Hosting Services können zum Löschen von Inhalten verpflichtet werden, Access Provider können zu #Netzsperren einzelner Inhalte oder ganzer Websites. (3/x)

My op-ed this morning in @IrishTimes:
Ireland blew its chance to lead EU in online safety.
#DigitalServicesAct #DSA

There are stories within this story...
The first story is about the Digital Services Act, which is weak on the algorithmic recommender systems that promote hate. Facebook’s internal studies found that these systems amplify unlawful material at enormous scale, and pushed people toward extremism. wsj.com/articles/faceb…
When an algorithm is designed to probe your darkest instincts and serve you a diet of poison, it should not come preinstalled and switched on by default.
See image: the DSA could have switched them off by default. That would have instantly slowed the torrent of unlawful material.

Last Friday, the #DigitalServicesAct deal was agreed. The #DSA is a gamechanger for our lives, society & the internet. It's incredibly important for regulating digital services, in particular the very big online platforms. But what does the deal mean & what's in it? Long 🧵
Clear rules for illegal content: In future, orders by judicial and administrative authorities of the Member States against illegal content (Article 8) and orders for information (Article 9). #DigitalServicesAct
All online services must have a contact point or legal representative in the EU. This also applies to services like Telegram. No one can operate on the market in Europe without complying with European law. #DigitalServicesAct

De la démocratie en Amérique.

Le cas #muskbuystwitter pose des questions politiques (plus que technologiques) importantes étant donné le rôle central de Twitter dans l'actualité et l'agenda politique, sa propriété est une question sensible.

Petit thread sur la question 👇
1/ L’evenement tient à la personnalité de Musk, excessive, et une idéologie, à la fois libertatienne et conservatrice. Son projet de liberté de parole maximale, à l’image des plateformes de l’Alt-Tech a été salué par l’Alt-Right US qui s’est toujours estimée censurée
2/ Par ailleurs, sa proximité avec Trump inquiète le camp démocrate / progressiste US, notamment pour ses prises de position sociétales (anti-woke, etc.) mais pas que... leur entente tient aussi du fait que Trump est l'un des grands sponsos du projet #Starship de #SpaceX .

Elon Musk buys Twitter. And many here, me including, start to worry. But why?

As far as I know, Musk hinted at two things he would do: Transparency for Algorithms (okay…) and “more” Free Speech, translate to: less moderating of objectionable, borderline content (oha!).

1/X
The assumption that less moderation in the grey area of lawful but awful leads to “more” free speech on quality-social-media-platforms is too simplistic.

Indeed, less moderation can threat “free speech” by allowing attacks on speakers and listeners.

2/X
To put it simple: In a townhall, where everybody is allowed to bring her megaphone to shout or walk (anonymously) close behind other folks and permanently whisper borderline provocations, there will be less speech in the end …

My 2c on #ElonMusk #TwitterTakeover: If Musk implements his announcements, it means that Twitter can pack up here in Europe.
With free speech absolutism, he underestimates the consequences for our democracy and will clash with obligations under the EU's #DigitalServicesAct.
#ElonMusk will soon be confronted with the #DigitalServicesAct: content moderation in the EU must meet high standards & respect all fundamental rights. The #DSA contains many strict rules for the biggest platforms - and Twitter will very likely fall in the VLOPs category.
The #DigitalServicesAct means that Twitter has to invest in human content moderators, it has to comply with due diligence obligations, such as risk assessments of its service & algorithms for society. If he doesn't comply: there will be heavy fines!

Das Grundproblem ist, dass die Plattformen/Zeitungen Großkonzernen & Milliardären gehören. Plattformen, auf denen öffentl. Diskurs/Infoaustausch stattfindet sind in privatem Besitz mit wenig Regulation. Private Öffentlichkeit. Egal ob #ElonMusk, andere Medien, andere Milliardäre
Egal ob Social Media oder Zeitungen - ein paar wenige Menschen *besitzen* den Großteil der Kommunikationswege. Man muss nicht mal systematischen Missbrauch annehmen, um die problem. Folgen zu sehen: Solange Profit das Ziel ist ( Unternehmen eben) ist das wichtiger als Fakten.
Fake News sind in einem System, in dem die Plattformen Unternehmer/n sind, ein feature, kein bug. Trump hat enorm viel Traffic & PR für Twitter geschaffen. FB greift spät & selten in Reichweiten (großer) notorischer Fake-Schleudern ein. Traffic ist Geld. Fakes sind Traffic.

After 16 hours long negotiations, the #DSA is done! While the final text of the Act is not available yet, this is what we learned thus far 🧵
❌Safeguards that would prevent legally mandated upload filters and strengthen the protection of E2EE communication - both under Article 7 - are not included in the final text.
✅It seems that search engines will not be obliged to de-list illegal content/websites. The last minute proposal of @EP_Legal that would force search engines to de-list whole entire websites and indiscriminately scan the content is out.

🚨BIG news: after months of intense discussions & 16 hours of negotiations into the early morning, the #EU has reached a deal on the Digital Services Act! A landmark moment in the history of Internet regulation, promising greater accountability of Big Tech amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
Big wins in the #DSA include:

- A ban on targeted ads to children. - A ban on profiling based on sensitive personal data.
- A ban on using deceptive online design interfaces (dark patterns).
- Independent yearly audits.
- Regulators & third-party researchers, including civil society, granted access to platform data and insights into their algorithmic ‘black boxes’.

These are HUGE wins in light of the decades-long regulatory Wild West in which Big Tech companies have been allowed to operate.

Heute findet in Brüssel die entscheidende Verhandlungsrunde zum neuen #DigitalServicesAct statt. Die Europäische Union kann mit diesem Regelwerk Maßstäbe bei der Regulierung digitaler Plattformen setzen und gleichzeitig die Bürgerrechte und die Demokratie besser schützen 🧵. #DSA
Obwohl der DSA in 🇩🇪 das problematische Regime des NetzDG ablösen wird, dient er primär nicht der Verfolgung bereits begangener Rechtsverletzungen. Der DSA reduziert vielmehr die strukturelle Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass auf großen Plattformen Rechtsverletzungen begangen werden.
Dazu sollen den Plattformen bestimmte Sorgfalts- und Rechenschaftspflichten auferlegt werden. Ein förmlicheres Verfahren soll sicher stellen, dass Overblocking vermieden und die Grundrechte geschützt werden.

Today might be D-Day for the Digital Services Act!

Together with the European Parliament & Council, the Commission has worked in record time to protect 🇪🇺 citizens online.

Here are the 10 things you need to know about the #DSA ahead of our (hopefully) final trilogue.

🧵⤵️
1️⃣ With great power comes great responsibility 🕷
 
The DSA is setting clear, harmonised #obligations for platforms – proportionate to size, impact & risk.

#DSA
2⃣ A harmonised system to fight ALL forms of #illegal content – from counterfeit or dangerous products to hate speech 🥷🏻
 
Any national authority will be able to request that illegal content is removed, regardless of where the platform is established in Europe.

#DSA
