How exciting is that!!? Being able to hang about when geese are roosting on their eggs (and they don't chase you off) is an awesome experience, too....

Twitter will ban all political advertising, the company’s chief executive officer Jack Dorsey announced on Wednesday, in a move that will increase pressure on Facebook over its controversial stance to allow politicians to advertise false statements.


Twitter to ban all political advertising, raising pressure on Facebook

Personally I think this a really good idea, ban all political advertising on social media, stops a lot of arguments and external influence. I am sure that it will be difficult to enforce this 100% but it will go a long way to helping. I would like to see other social media giants take this approach. I remember listening to a podcast about this issue not long ago where they worked out that the money that social media firms make from political advertising is actually a drop in the ocean and that some members are now put off social media because of politics. So I wouldn't be too surprised of others follow suit.


I usually never agree with you on anything political OSOTC however I 100% agree with you on this!

Paid political adverts on social media should never have been allowed in the first place in my opinion!

They should probably just start banning stupid people but that would be self-defeating for a company that depends on stupid people to stay relevant.

So they want to ban lies so stupid people can't hear lies and believe them. LOL

My fear is that Twitter will stop all paid ads, and then crack down even harder on conservative speech. Leaving Twitter to become a Liberal playground filled with in paid political ads by liberal tweeters, some of who will be paid themselves.

This nonsense keeps coming up. Why would socialists support corrupt, capitalist enterprises like twitter, and why would such entities go against their own benefit to promote an ideology under which their business would be dismantled?


I think that you're mistaking socialism for communism. Socialism allows free enterprise, in fact it actively encourages it so long as it benefits rather than exploits people.

The people who run companies like Twitter and Google believe that they are the good guys and that they are providing a public service for the betterment of mankind. It's why they can be extremely bias, and often support censorship. They believe that they are helping rather than hurting public discourse by directing it in a more liberal direction.

I’m not. Communism is a classless, stateless society. Karl Marx considered it the end goal of Socialism, which itself is a system where the means of production are commonly owned, either by the people in theory but in practice most often by the state.

Companies wielding political power or influence to the degree that US tech giants (amongst others) is called a corporatocracy. The very antithesis of socialism really.

No, fascism is where the government tells corporations what to do. Like Hitler telling Mercedes-Benz to build mobile gas chambers. This is the other way around.

Where are you seeing political ads on this site?


Maybe you and the people who gave your comment stars are not paying attention?

If you come on ATS and read without logging in you get political ads on the screen all the time. "Will you vote for Trump"... "Should Nancy Impeach?"...

It would be good if ALL political advertising was banned. Especially the poles.

If you want to see who is going to win - do not watch the predictions - watch the game.

Sounds like a pretty easy problem to solve. Log the hell in.

No, Fascism is an unholy alliance between government and large corporations, where they basically merge and you can't tell where one stops and the other starts.

No, that is a simple Dictatorship.

LOL twitter is scared of trumps campaign war chest. 100% guarantee that this policy will be reversed whenever they feel democrats have the upper hand again. It's sad that people don't see through these kinds of moves. Twitter has a problem though, trump is one of the biggest draws to twitter. So this will probably backfire on them, like everything else they do.
