"Curious why I think [Facebook] has too much power?"

Unless they too are cut down to size, breaking up United States tech companies would only provide temporary breathing space before their Chinese counterparts rush in and take over.

Ms. Warren responded on Twitter by thanking the company for restoring her ads, but noted that the short-lived fuss vindicates her analysis of why Facebook and similar behemoths need to be broken up. She says, companies like Amazon and Google which provide a platform for other shouldn't sell/promote their own things. The ad, apparently and understandably, did not sit well with someone at Facebook, however, with Politico reporting that three such ads were unavailable as of Sunday morning. The service's advertising policies ban use of "f" or the Facebook logo in place of the word "Facebook".


Facebook said Monday it is restoring three ads by 's presidential campaign calling for breaking up large tech companies that were earlier removed. The affected ads, which were almost identical and included a video, directed Facebook users to a petition on Warren's website asking them "to support our plan to break up these big tech companies".

Stone said the ads appeared to have been removed automatically, and pointed to dozens of Warren campaign ads about her proposal that didn't use the Facebook logo and were unaffected. "But I want a social media marketplace that isn't being dominated by a single censor #BreakUpBigTech".

Well, are they in competition with others who are developing the products? Warren retweeted him to further make her case against the company. Elizabeth Warren of MA, a 2020 Democratic nomination hopeful and, on Monday, hot social media topic.


Her comments go beyond idle speculation. Sen.

"In this way, Warren seeks to level the playing field for small businesses by giving them a "...fair shot to sell their products on Amazon without the fear of Amazon pushing them out of business.

In a pair of tweets on Monday evening, she said Facebook's actions proved that her ideas were good ones.


The ads featured a video about the proposal, that included the Facebook logo, and users were prompted to sign up to receive updates from the Warren campaign.
