Macron, Merkel “shocked” at Twitters banning Of Trump, call for big tech regulation
Euro centrists are still much better than US centrists


“The French government has echoed Angela Merkel’s sentiment in saying it is “shocked” at Twitter’s banning of President Trump, asserting that Big Tech is a threat to democracy.

Junior Minister for European Union Affairs Clement Beaune said the decision to silence Trump proved the need for Big Tech platforms to be tightly regulated.

“This should be decided by citizens, not by a CEO,” he told Bloomberg TV on Monday. “There needs to be public regulation of big online platforms.”

Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire also said that “the digital oligarchy” was “one of the threats” to democracy and should be reigned in by the state.

they can actually make it happen (tech regulation), given the coalition systems in European parliaments. USA will become one of the countries with least free speech in the world ironically, social media in South American and other poor countries is still the wild west basically.

I wonder what they're angle is, given that they don't give a damn about free speech.
