Twitter has announced a ban on all political advertising. CEO Jack Dorsey said, on his Twitter page “We Believe political message reach should be earned, not bought.”

The move is in sharp contrast to the stance of Facebook, and it’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. He said recently, Facebook Will allow politicians to run any claims in their ads. Facebook has come under fire from Democrats for their position, while Twitter is facing criticism from conservatives.
