Social media is full of information about Israel and Gaza. There are concerns about how much of it is fake. The EU opened an investigation into the website X. The EU says there is an alarming amount of false information on the site. The EU is worried X is, "being used to disseminate illegal content and disinformation". It gave X until the end of next week to answer questions about this content. The EU could fine X five per cent of the company's daily turnover.

The EU probe is looking at how tech companies deal with hate speech. The EU advised X to introduce, "proportionate and effective mitigation measures" to identify and delete disinformation. It added: "We have…reports about potentially illegal content circulating on X." Hundreds of bogus accounts are flooding the Internet with harmful content. X has removed hundreds of these. A social media expert called this, "a drop in the ocean".
