Twitter's decision to reject political ads causes Russian & CREEP campaign meltdowns.





The reactions to Jack Dorsey’s announcement about Twitter banning political ads are rolling in, and both Russian state media and the Trump campaign are having meltdowns.

Make of that what you will.

2. Jack Dorsey did the right thing

He asserted that political support should be earned, not bought. Now it's up to Facebook to accept the challenge. Ya listening, Zuck?

8. Zuck only cares about his ever fattening wallet

Since his questionable beginnings with FB, his soul has easily been sold

13. Yeah, he's only worth 70 billion dollars after his divorce settlement.

It must Zuck to have so little money.

6. What will Trump do with himself?

His whole twitter feed is an ongoing political ad.

12. It's a good move. Trump keeps them wildly profitable by promoting them every single day.

But he's going down and it's time to cut him loose and see if he floats down there.

15. Can individuals post ads in an "editorial" format?

You know, the way news channels will comment on someone's ad.

18. I encourage everyone to sit back and let the real pissbabies openly cry

It's easy to say "About time" and shit on Dorsey's other bad choices, but let's let the cockroaches really hurt by this scatter into the open and whine. Prior to this they've claimed it doesn't matter, but oh fuck it does!

20. All roads lead to Russia.


You could have just said "the Russian state".

Comrade Trumpsky is part and parcel of that.

21. What's funny is that they said political ads...

Not conservative ads...

Republicans once again showing where their loyalties lie, or don't.

Interesting as they only see themselves as being affected.

They've certainly mastered self-victimhood crocodile tears.
