Hello @Facebook. Shall we talk about how your new ad transparency "rules"?
Here's a pro-Brexit advert placed two days ago. It was "paid for by Cambridge Analytica". Posted by "Insider Research Group". And uses an image by the disgraced law-breaking campaign group, BeLeave...
...oh & links to @arron_banks LeaveEU. So...first question was it really "paid for Cambridge Analytica?" I find this...unlikely. Though...who knows? Because isn't that the point of @facebook's new "transparency" rules? It's impossible to know. Anybody can write anything here..
I know! Let's ask @nick_clegg. Nick, Facebook's new transparency rules do not work, do they? Just admit it. It's a disaster. America is days aways from the polls....and Vice reporters posed as 100 US senators. And had ads accepted from them all.
Yoo hoo @nick_clegg! Did Cambridge Analytica really pay for these ads? @Arron_banks, they're linking to your website. Anything to do with you? Or is this whole thing an unaccountable shitshow that the government has refused to act on?
Ha! Here we go. It was a stunt. The Cambridge Analytica ads were posted by...journalists. Well done @businessinsider. Good way of showcasing how @facebook is more broken than ever. The new ‘transparent’ ads it trumpeted just as clear as mud
