Twitter has named Renato Monteiro (FIP) as its acting data protection officer (DPO) following the resignation of Chief Privacy Officer Damien Kieran, who performed the role of the DPO. The company has notified the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC), its lead data protection supervisor, of the appointment. In response, the French data protection authority, the CNIL, has said it plans to discuss the "possible consequences" of changes at Twitter with the DPC. Meanwhile, the Financial Times (£) reports Twitter is on a collision course with the EU, which is growing increasingly concerned following Musk's rollout of Twitter Blue, its flagship premium subscription service.
