Twitter loves politicians, enables political donations via tweets

Looks to me as though Twitter has sold out, maybe because their stock isn't up. (Gee, a site posting mostly nonsense comments isn't worth billions?)

With the API access removal mentioned, it really does look like they have been bought.


There's not much Twitter won't do for a buck these days. Its stock is hammered—now just slightly higher than its initial public offering price of $26 per share in November 2013.
...
"We’ve teamed up with Square to enable anyone in the US to make a donation directly to a US candidate through a Tweet, starting today. This is the fastest, easiest way to make an online donation, and the most effective way for campaigns to execute tailored digital fundraising, in real time, on the platform where Americans are already talking about the 2016 election and the issues they are passionate about," Twitter's Jenna Golden said.
...
The moves marks a small period of Twitter-love for politicians as of late. Three weeks ago, Twitter severed API access to dozens of websites that archived deleted tweets from politicians. The most recent targets—Diplotwoops and the international version of Politwoops—spanned at least 30 countries, but Twitter found the sites to be in breach of the service's privacy policy.

The times are changing. I suppose you can donate with your bitcoin's through twitter as well? Thanks for posting this.
