It is a worrying decision, because it enables those online platforms to decide whose and which messages will gain exposure. Another attack on our freedom of thought.

Oh, now Jack is whining “we do not need money, our integrity does not allow us to accept money for fake ads”. He is just pretending that they are better than Facebook. But it is in vain…they will never be as popular as Facebook.

Finally a sensible decision. Political messages should gain following through their content, not optimization and money.

They did it to stop Trump. Online platforms are the only space where he can be heard, which is why this move is actually a move against democracy. Luckily, he can always rely on Facebook advertising. Twitter is a joke anyway.

Democracy is our right to informed decision-making. Allowing paid political ads prevents just that.

Will they be blocking ads from the so-called liberal media too? I guess not!
