I was the 2018 midterms war room PM: Blacking out political ads is a solution in search of a problem. Political ads are now *the most monitored* content on Facebook, and are of little concern compared to the massive volume of organic electoral misinfo from groups & pages.

For many young people, TikTok has been an outlet for creative expression and human connection, especially throughout months of distance learning and social isolation. The threat of losing it is devastating. https://t.co/Fal1oaI3CW

Quoted @jack

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…🧵

To be clear, I don't think banning political ads is purely symbolic. @jack's thread last year got at some of the real issues with them. But it *could* be useful to be seen as Taking More Action, if, hypothetically, that were your concern. https://t.co/zOADJIPolo

Hypothetically, if you wanted to be ~ excluded from the narrative ~ about the 2020 election without changing the core mechanics of your platform or wading into thorny politicized issues around organic distribution, this is probably what you'd do! https://t.co/P4EO2fNvEi

I'm confused by the specifics of the TikTok security panic, because it seems to suggest that TikTok could gather data from *other* apps, something I thought iOS/Android made impossible. Infosec Twitter, am I missing something? https://t.co/ozZxaT0d0V

I get the longing--I even share it--but the naivete is annoying. Online pundits should know (and factor in) that social media as a "public square" where "good faith debate" happens is a thing of the past. Disagreement here happens through trolling, sea-lioning, ratios, dunks.

this is a very good thread https://t.co/UJMnWRagB6

UPDATE: A 14th QAnon-supporting congressional candidate has now secured a spot on the ballot in November. New Jersey's Billy Prempeh has been declared the winner in his primary in his district. https://t.co/yM8gPNJOhq https://t.co/EDYFp36goG

I don't think people have fully absorbed the very real possibility that the next Congress will have actual, 8kun-posting, slogan-reciting QAnon believers in it. https://t.co/8BQ93Z9XoC

"The Wild Wild Web — the tech industry’s decade-long experiment in unregulated growth and laissez-faire platform governance — is coming to an end," writes our tech columnist @kevinroose. In its place, a new culture is taking shape. https://t.co/mjRTv4novZ
