NBC and Variety reporting that Twitter is banning all political ads.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey: "“A political message earns reach when people decide to follow an account or retweet. Paying for reach removes that decision, forcing highly optimized and targeted political messages on people. We believe this decision should not be compromised by money.”
He said they’d considered allowing just issue ads, but decided not to.
Good move. Hopefully Facebook will follow, but I don’t expect it.
