Why is Meta’s Threads NOT available in Europe?

Meta's Threads is currently unavailable in Europe due to regulatory reasons. The European Union's Digital Markets Act (DMA) imposes obligations on big tech companies, including Meta, such as prohibiting the combining of end-user data without consent. Since Threads requires users to log in with their Instagram profile, there are concerns about potential data leakage without explicit user consent. Violating the DMA can result in fines of up to 10% of annual worldwide revenue. The EU is engaged in negotiations with U.S. political authorities regarding data transfers and regulations.
