Social media giant Twitter has created headlines today with its plan to ban political advertisements.
Political advertisements play crucial role in elections in the US, as well as the rest of the world.
It was the main element that contributed towards the victory of Donald Trump in the previous presidential election in the United States.
The Republicans have strongly opposed the move. They have called it as the conspiracy of the political left.
Meanwhile, the Democrats have welcomed the move. They have appreciated the Twitter management for choosing democracy over advertisement revenue.
Many have called it as a significant development.
Earlier, the main rival of Twitter, Facebook, has ruled out the possibility of bringing a ban on political advertisement.
A political observer opines that the move of Twitter may force its main rival, Facebook, to adopt similar step.
Justifying his action, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says that the power of Twitter brings significant risks to politics.
