Google, Facebook and Twitter must remove extremist content within an hour or face hefty fines, the European Commission's president has said.

In his annual State of the Union address to the European Parliament, Jean-Claude Juncker said an hour was a "decisive time window".

Net firms had been given three months in March to show they were acting faster to take down radical posts.

But EU regulators said too little was being done.

I wonder if this will also apply to "content" posted / tweeted by heads of state ..

Its difficult to properly process a take down request in an hours, so what it amounts to is that they must automatically take down anything EU authorities ask them to.
