Twitter Flips Decision, Lets Blackburn Promote 'Baby Body Parts' Video

Source: Talking Points Memo




By NICOLE LAFOND Published OCTOBER 11, 2017 7:50 AM

Twitter reversed its decision to block Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-TN) campaign video from being promoted on the social media outlet Tuesday, saying there is “room to refine our policies” around this issue, according to Politico.

On Monday Twitter told Blackburn’s Senate campaign that a line in the announcement video, which bashed Planned Parenthood saying Blackburn stopped them from selling “baby body parts,” was inflammatory and against its rules for promoting advertisements. Blackburn was still able to share the video on Twitter, it just wasn’t allowed to be promoted.

Twitter’s full statement:

“Our ads policies strive to balance protecting our users from potentially distressing content while allowing our advertisers to communicate their messages. Nowhere is this more difficult than in the realm of political advertising and the highly charged issues that are often addressed therein. After further review, we have made the decision to allow the content in question from Rep. Blackburn’s campaign ad to be promoted on our ads platform.

“While we initially determined that a small portion of the video used potentially inflammatory language, after reconsidering the ad in the context of the entire message, we believe that there is room to refine our policies around these issues.”

1. Translation: the check came in and it was big enough.

Wonder if Marsha paid, or her Austrian Nazi handlers?

6. So "twitter"

“While we initially determined that a small portion of the video used potentially inflammatory language, after reconsidering the ad in the context of the entire message, we believe that there is room to refine our policies around these issues.”


Your full of shit it was about the money, just like the Russian Bots, it was about the money and getting into your bank account, no principles, no checking to see if they were legitimate sources, its about the money--------------end of story.

I am so glad I don't use that platform
