The European Union says Twitter is pulling out of the EU's voluntary code of practice against disinformation.

Axar.az reports that EU internal market commissioner Thierry Breton warned the social media giant, "You can run but you can't hide", with new laws targeting disinformation coming into effect on August 25.

Twitter has not confirmed it will leave the voluntary code and was still listed among signatories when Mr Breton made his comments.

Since taking the reins last year, Twitter CEO Elon Musk has reinstated accounts previously banned for spreading misinformation; slashed moderation teams and rolled back its COVID-19 misinformation policy.
