In a true indication we are living in strange times indeed, Twitter announced they will not allow political advertisements, but has allowed convicted felon O.J.Simpson to quickly gather a following of over 900k since joining the platform in June.
“We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought,” Twitter President Dorsey said when he announced the move.
“Twitter just walked away from hundreds of millions of dollars of potential revenue, a very dumb decision for their stockholders,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale responded.

The tweet has been liked over 108k times.
