Brussels’ Twitter headache — Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko — EU ‘Superstate’

This week, we debate how Europe is grappling with Twitter since Elon Musk took the helm. We hear from Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko and discuss a new book about the EU’s “Superstate” status.

Sarah Wheaton, author of POLITICO’s EU Influence newsletter, hosts this episode. She’s joined by Technology and Competition Editor Aoife White and Editor at Large Nick Vinocur to chew over the Brussels bubble’s reliance on Twitter — as questions swirl about the social media platform’s future. They also discuss how EU officials are grappling with legal questions surrounding Musk’s recent decisions on personnel and content.

Then, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko sits down with POLITICO’s Jamie Dettmer to discuss how his city is preparing for the cold winter months ahead.

Also, Sarah speaks with Alasdair Roberts, professor of public policy and author of a new book, “Superstates: Empires of the Twenty-First Century.” He unpacks the challenges of governance faced by what he refers to as “Superstates” such as the European Union, as well as the United States, India and China.
