On Wednesday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey took to the platform to let politicians around the world know their money wasn’t good there anymore.

Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg defends Facebook’s political ads policy (TechCrunch), which has been heavily criticized.

In my opinion, Zuck is hungry to be a player in deciding who will be the next President of the United States of America.
