Twitter CEO and founder Jack Dorsey announced a massive change in the news platform’s ad policies. And as the presidential election of 2020 approaches, it is particularly relevant.
The micro-blogging and social networking platform will soon ban all global political ads, which means your social media platform experience may be a little different in the coming months, depending on how interested you are in politics.
Jack Dorsey explained in a thread saying;
Twitter will unveil its full policy on this matter on November 15, and there will be a few exceptions, including allowing ads to support and assist in the registration of voters.
The policy will be formally enforced on November 22.
This new policy, to be clear, will not impact user-written tweets concerning political issues, even if those tweets are posted by politicians running for office.
To give you a fairer idea, POTUS Donald Trump’s official Twitter account will not be impacted by this policy but the account for his 2020 presidential campaign (as well as the Twitter accounts for the other 2020 presidential campaigns) will no longer be able to pay for politically-motivated ads to reach users on the platform.
