According to Politico, the social media giant temporarily removed an Facebook ad from Warren's presidential campaign promoting her newly unveiled plan to break up some of the biggest tech companies, including Facebook.

The company, however, told Politico that it pulled the ads down because they violated its policies against the use of its corporate logo. "Facebook, Amazon, and Google", the ads read.

The company said the ads were removed from its platform because they violated a policy on the use of the Facebook logo, not because the ads called for the break-up of Facebook, Amazon, and Google.

Stone said the ads appeared to have been removed automatically, and pointed to dozens of Warren campaign ads about her proposal that didn't use the Facebook logo and were unaffected.

USA senator Elizabeth Warren thinks Apple has an unfair advantage on the App Store and believes the company should not be in control of the iOS app marketplace. "But I want a social media marketplace that isn't being dominated by a single censor #BreakUpBigTech". USA sharemarkets are unfazed by Warren's threats of regulation, and tech stocks rose.

Today's big tech companies have too much power - too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy. "But in their rise to power, they've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field in their favor". "We break them apart, that backs up the influence a little bit, and it makes absolutely sure that they're not engaged in these unfair practices that stomp out every little business that's trying to get a start". Elizabeth Warren of MA, a 2020 Democratic nomination hopeful and, on Monday, hot social media topic. "And in the process, they have hurt small businesses and stifled innovation", Warren wrote on Medium. It sent tremors through Silicon Valley.

And she doubled down a few minutes later, retweeting a reply to her comment. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) put it. Other examples include a universal child-care plan and a wealth tax imposing an annual levy of 2 percent on Americans with more than $50 million in assets and 3 percent on those with more than $1 billion. Basically, to end the anti-competitive practices in the industry, the Senator from MA proposes the following: break them up.

Facebook initially responded by pulling the ads down.
