‘We have reached the limit.' Clash with Elon Musk prompts calls for social media controls in Brazil

·1 min

Brazil’s attorney general is calling for the regulation of social media platforms in the country. This comes after Elon Musk threatened to disobey a court order banning certain accounts on his platform. The attorney general stated that it is crucial to regulate social networks to prevent billionaires domiciled abroad from having control over them. Brazil’s Supreme Court described Musk’s defiance as an obstruction of justice and called for an investigation into him. This is the latest clash between authorities and Musk, who has relaxed content moderation policies on his platform.
