JUST IN: Twitter Bans All Political Advertising

Well, that solves that.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced on Wednesday afternoon that the company will no longer allow any political ads globally from this point forward.

“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.” -Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO

To make a long story short, Twitter is saying that you should earn your vote, not buy it. I kind of like it, but let’s see what the pundits have to say about it.

“this isn’t about free expression. This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today’s democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It’s worth stepping back in order to address.” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey
