Things We Saw Today: Twitter Has Yet Another New Policy That Might Be Illegal

After a week of Mastodon links being tagged as “potentially harmful” in people’s tweets, Twitter Support announced today that it was banning the sharing of links from any of their competitors – oops, I mean any other “prohibited” social media sites. That included mega-platforms like Facebook and Instagram, but also up-and-coming smaller sites like Mastodon and Post, which many had been sharing as potential viable alternatives to Twitter. It also included that linktrees (the ways in which many creatives including writers, artists, and sex workers use to promote their businesses) would also be banned. But it turns out this is potentially violating a law of the European Union.
