Ireland's Data Protection Commission (DPC), which looks into big tech companies and their data practices, submitted a preliminary decision in a probe into Twitter whether it complied with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to other member states of the European Union (EU).
The Twitter probe is related to a bug in its Android app in 2019, where some users' tweets were made public.
