Conservative Win! Twitter Backs Down…

Twitter announced Tuesday evening that they will allow Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-TN) Senate campaign ad, despite initially refusing to let her promote it on their platforms Monday because they found her allegations of Planned Parenthood’s sale of “baby body parts,” to be “inflammatory.”

“Our ads policies strive to balance protecting our users from potentially distressing content while allowing our advertisers to communicate their messages,” Twitter spokesman Nicholas Pacilio in a statement. “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,” he said. “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. We have notified Rep. Blackburn’s campaign of this decision.”

Blackburn told Fox News that “I think what has happened, the American people rose up. They are sick and tired of the liberal elites and the liberal media telling them what they’re going to listen to, and what is going to be pushed forward and broadcast and what is not, and in this example it was Twitter.”
