Twitter faces potential fine from Australia over surge in online “Toxicity and Hate” after Elon Musk's takeover
Twitter could face fines from Australia's internet safety watchdog for failing to address online abuse, particularly hate speech. The social media platform has a 28-day deadline to show its commitment to addressing the issue or face fines of AUD 700,000 ($475,000) per day.
Twitter is facing potential fines from Australia's internet safety watchdog due to its failure to address online abuse, which has surged following Elon Musk's involvement with the platform. The e-safety commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, who was once an employee of Twitter, stated that the social media platform now accounts for one-third of the reported complaints regarding hate speech in Australia.
