Twitter bans political ads

Twitter is to blacklist all political advancing far and wide, saying that the scope of such messages “should be earned, not bought”

Highlights:

  • Twitter announced a ban on political promotions
  •  Facebook rules out restriction on the political ad.

Twitter CEO tweeted “while internet advertising is incredibly powerful and very effective for commercial advertisers, that power brings significant risks to politics, where it can be used to influence votes to affect the lives of millions.”

On the other hand, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, rules out prohibition on the political promotion.

On the announcement, Brad Parscale, director of President Donald Trump’s re-appointment campaign, said that the ban is one more endeavor to quiet Trump by the left supporters. While Bill Russo, representative for the campaign to choose Democratic Joe Biden, stated: “When looked with a decision between advertisement dollars and the honesty of our vote based system, it is empowering that, for once, revenue didn’t win out.”

“In a democracy, I don’t think its right for private companies to censor politicians or the news,” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said.

Twitter will release the full insights regarding the ban by November 15, and the restriction will be begun from November 22.

Hillary Clinton supported Twitter’s restriction on political promotions and approached Facebook for their perspectives on the issue.
