With the layoffs at Twitter, the EU privacy watchdog is concerned if the social media company will be able to comply with regulations such as GDPR and Digital Services Act, reports Bloomberg.

Twitter's main European Union privacy watchdog said it's "very concerned" about the ability of Elon Musk's social media giant to abide by E.U. laws following an exodus of staff and news last week that a senior executive in Dublin had to go to court to avoid losing her job.

Twitter's top data watchdog in the E.U. said it contacted the company on Monday, seeking answers to a number of questions and assurances about its continued compliance with E.U. law.
