image for Elizabeth Warren slams Twitter for a policy that bans ads from groups fighting climate change

Elizabeth Warren is proving to be an equal opportunist when it comes to taking on social media companies.

On Tuesday, Sen. Warren, who's running for president, slammed Twitter's new ad policy that bans political ads.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the Massachusetts Democrat attacked the company for blocking organizations that are fighting climate change from running ads on the social network while allowing ads from companies like Exxon on the same topic.

Her criticism comes a week after Twitter said it would no longer allow political ads on its service, a policy that blocks ads from politicians, ads that refer to an election or candidate or ads related to politically-sensitive issues.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has defended his company's political ads policy, saying in a speech at Georgetown University that "banning political ads favors incumbents and whoever the media covers."

This was Warren's first time to publicly go after Twitter's stance on political ads.

AT&T fined $60 million for throttling ‘unlimited’ data plans

Authored by

It alleges that the company lied to customers about its “unlimited” data plans because it throttled their data if they ever went over a certain threshold.

The settlement requires AT&T to deposit that $60 million into a fund that will be used to provide “partial refunds” to customers who signed up for unlimited data plans before the year 2011 (when the company’s throttling policy first went into effect).

In the summer of 2015, the Federal Communications Commission fined AT&T $100 million for similar deceptive marketing practices involving its data plans. »

Connect the HDMI cable to the Portal TV and then the TV -- then connect the power adapter to the Portal TV and a nearby outlet.

As with the Facebook Portal review, I borrowed a Facebook account from a co-worker to test out the Portal TV.

Facebook Watch works differently on the Portal TV, and is ultimately the distinguishing feature that separates it from other Portal devices. »
