EU regulators wrangle over Twitter data privacy penalty

European Union privacy regulators are wrangling over the penalty Ireland’s data privacy watchdog was set to issue Twitter for a data breach, pushing back the case’s long awaited conclusion under the bloc’s tough new data privacy rules.

The Irish Data Privacy Commission was expected to issue its decision in the Twitter case, which would be its first involving a US technology company since the new privacy law, known as GDPR, took effect in 2018, allowing for hefty fines.

But it said on Aug 20 that its counterparts in other countries – so-called concerned supervisory authorities – challenged a draft decision it circulated in May.
