Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey said:

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earn, not bought.

Like Twitter, Facebook is also facing trouble for not banning ads that are related to false information that become the reason for election navigate.

Bill Russo, deputy communications director for the Biden campaign, said:

We appreciate that Twitter recognizes that they should not permit disproven smears, like those from the Trump campaign, to appear in advertisements on their platform.

He added that:

It would be unfortunate to suggest that the only option available to social media companies to do so is the full withdrawal of political advertising, but when faced with a choice between ad dollars and the integrity of our democracy, it is encouraging that, for once, revenue did not win out.

Parscale said in a statement:

Will Twitter also be stopping ads from biased liberal media outlets that will now run unchecked as they buy obvious political content meant to attack Republicans. This is yet another attempt to silence conservatives since Twitter knows President Trump has the most sophisticated online program ever known.

A Twitter spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
