Twitter Joins Facebook in Supporting 'Honest Ads' Legislation

In a series of tweets from its public policy account, Twitter announced its decision to back the Honest Ads Act, a piece of legislation introduced last year as a response to mounting evidence that Russia leveraged domestic social media platforms in an attempt to influence U.S. politics during the 2016 presidential election. After initially avoiding a commitment to the bill, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg endorsed the proposal last week.
