Twitter To Ban All Political Ads Ahead Of 2020 Elections

Twitter is done with political advertising. Period. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted out the news on Wednesday afternoon, making it clear that the site will be putting an end to all political advertising globally. Dorsey also, in a series of tweets, explained the company’s decision to take such a stance, quipping that political message reach should be earned, not bought. Of course, the platform’s new stance, which Dorsey said they will start enforcing on Nov. 22 after sharing a final policy on Nov. 15, is in sharp contrast with Facebook’s own stance. Facebook has been under increasing scrutiny for refusing to even fact-check ads blasted out by politicians or campaigns, meaning that lies are a free-for-all.
