Twitter to ban all political advertising worldwide

Twitter has announced its plans to stop all political advertising globally. Jack Dorsey the co-founder and CEO of the app went online yesterday evening to state that:

“We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought.”

Twitter’s ban will be enforced on 22 November.

The announcement has caused many to turn to Facebook to seek that Mark Zuckerberg implements the same.

Even Hilary Clinton being amongst those questioning the Facebook founders’ actions.

However earlier this month the Facebook chairman ruled out a ban on political ads.

During a conference call with journalists Zuckerberg said:

“In a democracy, I don’t think it’s right for private companies to censor politicians or the news.”

Whenever you agree with Dorsey or Zuckerberg it will certainly be interesting to see how these implementations will affect the future of politics.
