Twitter is halting all political advertisements across its social media platform starting late next month, founder and CEO Jack Dorsey announced Wednesday.

The CEO concluded his announcement with a veiled jab at Facebook's excuse for allowing politicians to post ads that spread lies and conspiracy theories.

In a notable exchange with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Zuckerberg couldn't say for sure whether the congresswoman could run Facebook ads claiming that certain Republicans had voted for her Green New Deal.

"We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought", Dorsey wrote on Twitter.

"These challenges will affect all Internet communication, not just political ads. All at increasing velocity, sophistication, and overwhelming scale". Paying for reach removes that decision, forcing highly optimized and targeted political messages on people.

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

"We need more forward-looking political ad regulation (very hard to do)". Online political ads pose "significant risks to politics", he tweeted. "The internet provides entirely new capabilities, and regulators need to think past the present day to ensure a level playing field", he said.

Mr Dorsey said there would also be a few exceptions - "ads in support of voter registration will still be allowed, for instance" - and that the company would share its final policy on November 15.

The policy shift, which will be enforced beginning on November 22 and includes candidate and issue ads, comes amid growing concerns from Democrats and technologists that political advertising on social platforms like Facebook could spread misinformation or depress voter turnout ahead of the US 2020 elections.
