Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have been consistently hypocritical in terms of their policies. As if people living in developing countries are lesser beings and their manipulation through social media doesn't matter.— Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) February 22, 2020
The most important part of this story may be that Facebook is not doing what Twitter is because it is making so much off Bloomberg's campaign.— Zephyr Teachout (@ZephyrTeachout) February 22, 2020

Currently, propaganda+misinformation is belted out by multiple accounts controlled by various Indian political parties, with identical behavior as mentioned in the above article, but Twitter won't consider it as platform manipulation.— Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) February 22, 2020
way to set priorities @twitter @jack -- hate speech, millions of fake accounts, russian trolls, trump lies & bigotry & incentivized violence are all ok -- but Bloomberg sock puppets? hey THAT'S WHERE WE DRAW THE LINE. #FiddlingWhileRomeBurns 🎻🔥 https://t.co/LESPa4GObX— Dave McClure (@davemcclure) February 22, 2020

Bloomberg's meme campaign underscores the loopholes in political-ad rules.— S•P•Q•R™🤺⚔️🇺🇸 (@Static_Waste) February 21, 2020
Dem candidates are paying social media influencers to spread political messages. Itty-bitty is going full extreme since his platform shoes didn't make him as tall as the rest.

“The pro-Bloomberg posts violated policy by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.”

@MikeBloomberg, how do I sign up to be a $2,500-per-month “deputy field organizer” “to promote the former New York mayor’s candidacy within [my] personal social circles.” I guess I just start doing it and then send you a bill? https://t.co/22XB68Nrim #Bloomberg #Bloomberg2020— Lenny Dykstra (@LennyDykstra) February 23, 2020
