BTR News: Twitter’s Political Ad Ban Will Not Stop Political Misinformation Campaigns

Scotty T. Reid – The road to hell is paved with good intentions is a popularized quote and no matter how sincere Twitter is about improving political discourse and preventing misinformation, their plan to ban political ads across its platform will only increase the number of bots and paid trolls on their platform. If sincere, they should be applauded for their “good intentions” but I fear their new policy on banning political ads might create a misinformation hell instead, good intentions and all.
