Celebrating now the end of wild west on #Internet with a glass of tea! #Europe is designing its digital future & need sharp teeth to its new powers! #Platforms will operate in a legal framework that until now was nonexistent #DSA #DMA 🎊 @EU_Commission @Europarl_EN #Mythread 1/1
No more domination of technological giants in 🇪🇺 VP @vestager said #DSA #DMA are basic pillars of the efforts to impose stricter rules on #usedandabused technology groups& establish regulations suitable for #Internet era. 1/2
#Democracy now sets the rules for #digital world, rather than the tech giants. #DSA #DMA. #Vestager 1/3
Large #technology companies will have to operate more transparently, companies will be forced to be transparent about the #algorithms they use. 1/4
#EU is taking political action in order to regulate #tech giants, but social media platforms also carry a responsibility to cooperate with the authorities, and should not counteract regulation efforts. #DSA #DMA  1/5
With this "innovative legislation" #Europe can inspire other countries, including #US#DSA and #DMA will have a profound global impact, as the rest of the world is expected to use it as a model for its own regulation (as it was the case for #GDPR privacy legislation). 1/6
#EU is "the first in the world to set a standard for regulating the #digital space" said @ThierryBreton! 1/7
Plenty of #enforcement challenges! It will be the first time @EU_Commission will directly implement #internalmarket legislation that has, until now, been delegated to national authorities. @DigitalEU #Vestager 1/8
@EU_Commission will have to fight against experienced & expensive lawyers defending tech giants like #Apple. #DMA @Andreas_Schwab:“we need lawyers & economists but we also need data specialists & people that can analyse algorithms, but it will not be easy...” 1/9
#DSA stipulates the appointment of a #Digital Services Coordinator in each #EU member state, and to ensure coordination of supervision at national level, and to contribute to the effective and consistent application and enforcement of the law across the EU. 1/10
In many #EU countries the debate on which authority should be entrusted with this task has already started. For example, the issue is sensitive in #Germany as the powers to regulate #digital services are distributed among various authorities at federal and state level. #DSA 1/11
Some #NGOs warn the planned measures to curb #hatespeech could also have negative effects, pointing to the lack of mechanisms to protect #FreedomOfExpression. Just finished my tea! END

#Mythread on #Ukraine & #Africa from a #GlobalGateway perspective! Good news from @EU_Commission, #Ukraine’s recovery will cost $750 billion. Probably a lot will come from from seized #Russian assets! @vonderleyen said #EU already raised €6.2 billion for #Ukraine #MyPhoto 1/1
More to be done via a new special platform to be co-chaired by #Kyiv and #EuropeanCommission! Good initiative, but it will probably not automatically scale up private finance & create conditions for companies to think long-term! 1/2
Many questions still need to be answered: How will #EU support #Ukraine's neighboring countries affected? What are the #privatesector priority sectors: #digital solutions, #green transition, #water and #sanitation, and in which countries? 1/3

#EU backs into the diplomatic efforts btw #Russia #US #Nato to de-escalate the military conflict #Ukraine. Long dinner at Kremlin but not my kind of dinner. #Macron discussed his 3 de-escalation plan. #Mythread #MyPhoto 1/1
First proposal of Macron for de-escalation it was of course...#Russia to show a gesture of de-escalation. #Putin reassured to withdraw his troops from #Belarus after their joint military exercises, but said nothing about his troops at the border with #Ukraine. #Macron #NATO 1/2
2nd proposal of Macron is on new security architecture (interesting for EU) and guarantees Moscow wants from Nato and the US: mutual limitation of military deployments, transparency, a limitation to short/intermediate-range missile deployments. 1/3

If there is the possibility of aliens existing in our Galaxy, they would be laughing at us in this moment, because they would observe how incapable we are of stopping all ridiculous things that are happening including wars we are waging #mythread
on #Russia #Ukraine #USA
#EU 1/1
#Baerbock calls for stable relations with #Russia but sees fundamental differences in frosty meeting with #Lavrov, stating Russian troop presence near #Ukraine had “no understandable reason” #Psaki says Russia could launch an attack in Ukraine “at any time”. 1/2
Baerbock opened dialogue by suggesting there is "no alternative to stable relations btw Moscow & Berlin”, confirming that she and the federal government want to continue to work on that. #FAZ 1/3

Tuesday is #Russia! A leap in the dark: #Baerbock will meet Zelensky on Monday & Lavrov on Tuesday. Baerbock will attempt to revive the #Normandy during her visit. Baerbock would represent not only #German but also the #European position.
#Mythread 1/1

#USCongress - no mandatory sanctions against #NordStream2. #FriedrichMerz, not that he has too much power, #CDU chairman, said that the exclusion of #Russia from the Swift payment system would constitute a nuclear bomb for capital markets. Let's see if #Scholz will agree 1/2
Let's be honest! Some hypocrisy here switching to the need for a common #European answer. The deal btw #Merkel and #Biden says that #NordStream2 cannot be opened if #Putin were using the pipeline for geopolitical purpose. An invasion of #Ukraine is trigger of that clause.1/2

No joke! Back home from holiday, my 8 y old daughter's 1st ❓: “Do you know what's going on in #Kazakhstan? The president allowed to shoot the population.” I think my son "briefed" her. My oldest daughter received videos from her colleagues in Kazakhstan. My thread bellow 1/1 ImageImage
#EUforeignpolicy: @EmmanuelMacron & @vonderleyen demanding the violence in #Kazakhstan cease adding #EU is ready to help calm the situation & assist where it can. @JosepBorrellF reiterating that it's important that rights and civilian safety is ensured #HumanRightsViolations 1/2
#US @SecBlinken: not clear why #Kazakhstan feel the need for any outside assistance. It would seem to me that the government certainly have the capacity to deal appropriately with protests to do so in a way that respects the rights of protesters while maintaining law & order.1/3
