Just one day after expressing his concerns about Twitter’s content moderation practises, Emmanuel Macron claimed to have had a “clear and honest” conversation with Elon Musk regarding the social media network.

“Transparent user policies, significant reinforcement of content moderation and protection of freedom of speech: efforts have to be made by Twitter to comply with European regulations,” Macron said in a tweet after his meeting with Musk on Friday afternoon.

In an interview with the television programme Good Morning America on Thursday, Macron, who is now on a visit to the United States, stated that he thought free expression had “responsibilities and boundaries.”

Researchers have noted an increase in hate speech on the social media platform when Musk, a supporter of free speech, issued a pardon for accounts suspended under the previous management of the firm but not for breaking the law or sending “egregious spam.”

The billionaire Musk promptly started a number of adjustments to the product and employees after purchasing Twitter on October 27 for $44 billion.
