Poli-ban...

In a bit of good news today, it was announced that Twitter will be banning all political ads on its platform rather than deal with with false and misleading ads being placed. 

Sure, it's a huge loss of revenue for Twitter, but I think it's a very noble move. And the right one. 

But if you read the article from The Verge linked above, you'll notice a very telling bit contained therein regarding Facebook.

In a response letter obtained by The Verge at the time, Facebook said that it would not be fact-checking claims made by politicians in ads placed on the platform.

Yet another reason why I firmly stand behind my many previous claims that Twitter is better than Facebook and why I continue to be happy that I actively scaled back Facebook usage a year and a half ago. I do not regret that decision one bit.

I still don't have the app on my phone.

Now if only they'd ban politically charged tweets. Alas...
