European DPAs object against Irish DPC’s draft ruling in Twitter data breach case

According to the Wall Street Journal, eleven national data protection authorities have objected the ruling proposed by the Irish DPA, in the case of Twitter’s 2019 data breach. This decision is expected to spark a lengthy dispute-resolution mechanism over the substance of the ruling and the size of the fine. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Twitter could face a fine of up to 2% of its global revenue last year, for failing to disclose the breach within 72 hours.
