Twitter will ban all political ads moving forward: Jack Dorsey

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced on Thursday that the company has decided to place a ban on all political ads and interest advocacy ads from November 22. He wrote that Twitter will publish the final policy on November 15. He also called for the need for a new regulation that would ensure no internet company has the power to tip the balance in elections.

Banning speech, especially *political speech*? That's MORE censorship, not less, AND it targets politicians! I doubt they allow this to stand. On the other hand Twitter has a far smaller audience than Facebook or other social platforms.

It's not like this creates a neutral playing field after YEARS of unabated Trump bashing.

But yet they'll shadow ban conservatives and throttle liberal talking points. This is the loop hole plan they'll use

It will be interesting to see what Twitter defines as a "political ad" or how soon it takes people to find and exploit loopholes in this policy. That being said, at face value I have no problem with the idea of Twitter banning political ads. I applaud the decision though I am skeptical about Twitter's sincerity.
