Twitter is banning all political advertising from its service, saying social media companies give advertisers an unfair advantage in proliferating highly targeted, misleading messages. Dorsey said the following:
> A final note. This isn't about free expression. This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today's democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It's worth stepping back in order to address.

A Power 5 AD in New York this week said a specific 8-team playoff model is circulating around the CFB world that would incorporate bowls, including a bowl-sponsored national championship game.
Youtube is currently putting up an ad about animal cruelty. It displays the text "Ever Heard the sound of suffering?" The ad includes the sounds of animals being slaughtered, and flashes imagery of animal cruelty. The ad can cause anxiety, and many have experienced panic attacks. If you get this ad, then immdeiately mute and scroll down. If you are on mobile, close the video immediately. The content starts 10 seconds in. If you can handle the content included, or are fast enough, please try and report the ad.
Stay safe fellow teens.
EDIT: The ad is unskippable
EDIT 2: I am not advocating for myself nor people who are not bothered. I am advocating for those who can not withstand the content within this ad.
EDIT 3: Some are claiming the sounds in this ad are pigs fighting over food. If that is true, then this ad is still technically spreading false information while trying to scare people.
There is an upcoming change to the YouTube ToS that states that:
>YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable.
While this wording is (probably intentionally) vague, it could mean bad things for anyone using ad block, YT Vanced, etc if Google decides that you're not "commercially viable". I know that personally, I would be screwed if I lost my Google account.
If you think this is not worth worrying about, look at what Google has just done to hundreds of people that were using (apparently) too many emotes in a YT live stream chat that Markiplier just did. They've banned/closed people's entire Google accounts and are denying appeals, and it's hurting people in very real ways. Here is Markiplier's tweet/vid about it for more info.

I found out about it here:
I'm really mad because I was under the impression all of the bundles would be ad-free and didn't require any special tricks or jumping through hoops.
Really you just have to refresh the site. When you refresh the site one of three things can happen:
1: you get a skippable ad. In this case it's faster to refresh if the previous ad was longer than 5 seconds.
2: you get no ad at all. Sometimes YouTube thinks you've already watched an ad for the video and just skips it.
3: you get the same as again. In this case you'll have to refresh the site again. May sometimes take more than 2 refreshes.
Edit: I get that you can just use an ad Blocker but sometimes you're at another PC with no ad Blocker or you want to support the creators on YouTube. Either way, y'all can stop commenting about ad blockers now.
There's an entire professional creative agency, PR firm, etc. that worked on this campaign... and it explicitly name-drops "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" in the press release. I personally don't believe this could've been done without some approval from Disney/Lucasfilm.
Pretty sure this shit isn't allowed?
Search for "Labour party" - you'll see the following ad: https://i.imgur.com/j7zFHca.png
Surely that shit can't be legal? Literally baiting clicks by pretending to be Labour.....
FYI takes you here: https://www.labourmanifesto.co.uk/ - can't believe Labour didn't snag that domain first, poor show.
