Twitter privacy ruling leads to standoff between Ireland and EU data regulators

Several EU regulators opposed Ireland’s ruling in a landmark privacy investigation of the micro-blogging site Twitter, the lead regulator said.

It has triggered a process where a majority decision will be sought.

Twitter was set to become the first tech giant to face a fine by Ireland’s DPC (Data Protection Commission) after it submitted the decision to other member states in May.

For violations under the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), fines can be imposed by regulators of up to 4% of a company’s global revenue or $22 million, whichever is higher.

The biggest fine to date was a 50 million-euro penalty for tech giant Google issued by France’s watchdog CNIL.
