Majority of the European Parliament welcomes the Commission's intention to oblige e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol) by 580:76:37.


Ok, so, who has experienced that a written sentence or emoji in a text message was misunderstood by friend or family, needing more messages to explain the intended meaning? 🙋

Surely, automated scanning and people you never met will understand all tests correctly, will they? Or is there any possibility that a text snippet could fall out of context? Could that ever happen to.. say.. someone having given an interview? -> politicians?

Thanks for pushing back, Patrick and Greens/EFA

That is a brilliant idea 😂 It should be made mandatory for e.g. official government accounts, so that individuals don't run into problems from using it. "Officials" would have better chance to request disacknowledgement of algorithmically generated negative scores
