The Republicans must have been aware that the social media platforms would try to suppress their campaigns in 2020. Far-Left Twitter knows that the Republican Party is far more dependent on social media than the Democrats are.
The mainstream media outlets are hostile to Republicans, and are essentially the marketing arm of the Democrat Party. As such, the MSM will never report on the Republicans objectively or accurately.
Social media advertising is the most effective way for Republicans and Conservatives to counter attack the unhinged Democrats, and their equally unhinged allies in the mainstream media.
This decision by Twitter could have huge implications in 2020 for all races. President Trump and the Republicans must vigorously fight this decision. Without social media the Republican Party could become the Whig Party in the not too distant future.
Trump campaign says Twitter ad block will ‘silence conservatives’
‘Twitter just walked away from hundreds of millions of dollars of potential revenue’
By The Verge, October 30th, 2019:
On Wednesday, Twitter announced that it would ban all political advertising on the platform next month, a move President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is calling “a very dumb decision.”
Twitter’s move to ban all political ads comes after weeks of lawmakers berating Facebook over its own policy that allows politicians to lie in ads. Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign was the first to take issue with the policy, penning letters to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube demanding that they ban ads that contain false or misleading information. Those letters were prompted by false ads placed by the Trump campaign.
Twitter bans political ads in yet another attempt by the left to silence Trump and conservatives. Wouldn’t be surprised if @twitter lifted the ban after 2020.

In its statement, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale alleged that Twitter’s new political ads ban could hurt Republicans more than Democrats, harkening back to the party’s baseless theory that conservative speech is censored more on social media.
“Twitter just walked away from hundreds of millions of dollars of potential revenue, a very dumb decision for their stockholders,” Parscale said in a statement. “Will Twitter also be stopping ads from biased liberal media outlets who will now run unchecked as they buy obvious political content meant to attack Republicans? This is yet another attempt to silence conservatives, since Twitter knows President Trump has the most sophisticated online program ever known.”
Twitter’s actual revenue from campaign advertising is significantly smaller than Parscale’s figure, coming it at less than $1 million in recent cycles.
