GDPR enforcement of Twitter breach delayed by Irish DPA

According to TechCrunch, the Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) has further delayed its enforcement decision following a Twitter data breach in 2018. The decision of the DPC was expected to be announced ‘early’ 2020. The latest delay is a consequence of disagreements between the DPC and other data protection authorities which, under the rules of GDPR, have a right to raise objections on a draft decision where users in their countries are also affected. A final decision on the Twitter breach could be delayed until November 2020.
