Twitter briefly censors Rose ad on Malliotakis anti-abortion record


Twitter censored an advertisement by Democratic congressional candidate Max Rose critiquing his Republican opponent Nicole Malliotakis’ record on abortion and reproductive health, slapping the commercial with age restrictions for sensitive content in a move Rose called “outrageous.”

The social media giant removed the age restrictions for viewing the ad within several hours, after the Rose campaign had filed an appeal. Reps for Twitter did not respond to an inquiry as to why the ad was censored or how it met the company’s guidelines for sensitive content.
