Political Advertisements on November 22 Will No Longer be Allowed on Twitter
Governmental ads are no more permitted on Twitter from Friday, 22 Nov. This can be, for instance, compensated advertising and marketing where people are referred to as upon to assist a campaign or vote for a particular politician.
CEO Jack Dorsey got already suggested last month he wished to prohibit political ads. However it was not yet very clear during that time what types of advertising and marketing the new guideline would pertain to.
Now Twitter has introduced additional information. All advertising that describes ‘a prospect, governmental get together, elected or employed government election, official and referendum voting measure,guidelines and rules, directive or judicial outcome’ will no longer be recognized.
There will also be constraints for advertisements which can be specifically directed at certain geographical locations.
There is certainly huge social stress on social media marketing companies to stop accepting ads that distribute fake details and could impact elections. Twitter differentiates itself from rival Fb, which fails to stand in the way of political ads.
