The regulation expands the scope of what companies must consider personal data, and it requires them to closely track the data they've stored on EU residents.

Because the GDPR applies to any organization that collects, processes, manages or stores the data of European citizens, it essentially sets a new global standard for data protection that applies to most major online services and businesses.

"I received a message saying my account was now locked, and would require parental consent in order to process my data, or my account will be deleted," a 20-year-old user, who had signed up for an account with a fake age before later changing it to the actual one, told the Guardian.

Twitter said Tuesday it's working on a solution that will allow those impacted users to remain on the service.

"In the meantime, we're reaching out to people impacted with options to unlock their account and continue to use Twitter," the company said in one of its tweets. "Instructions from us will come during the coming week."
