After EDPB decision, Twitter could face first GDPR fine within weeks

During its 41st plenary session, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted by a two-thirds majority of its members its first dispute resolution decision on the basis of Article 65 of the GDPR. The binding decision sought to address a dispute following the draft decision issued as part of the investigation led by the Irish data protection authority against Twitter. The decision of the EDPB comes after several reasoned objections (RROs) were expressed by a number of other concerned supervisory authorities (CSAs). According to TechCrunch, Ireland’s data protection authority now has up to one month to issue a final decision.
