European Parliament President Roberta Metzola has sent a letter to new Twitter owner billionaire Elon Musk. He is asked to come to Brussels for a “frank public exchange of views” with representatives of the European Parliament. This is reported by Politico.

The official noted that Twitter has a tremendous role in the democratic life of the European Union. The social network, she said, guarantees the possibility of civil discourse.
