Hold Twitter Advertisers Accountable
Multi-billionaire Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter for $44 billion, nearly $54.20 per share.
Musk doesn’t believe that any posts — however factually inaccurate, violent or inflammatory — should be banned from Twitter. A Twitter with Musk at the helm will not be a paradise of free speech — it will be a hellscape of hate speech, disinformation, violence and white supremacy.
We need Twitter to improve its policies to keep all its users — and our democracy — safe from hate and disinformation. We’ve asked Twitter executives nicely to take the necessary steps, and now we’re ready to up the ante by hitting Twitter where it hurts: its bottom line.
We’ve teamed up with dozens of partner organizations to send a letter to Disney, General Mills, HBO, Kellogg, Kraft, Nestlé and Procter & Gamble demanding that they pull all advertising from Twitter until the platform commits to basic standards of content moderation to keep users safe and limit the spread of hate speech and disinformation.
Sign the petition to tell these major companies that they must pull their advertising dollars from Twitter NOW until there are rules in place to keep everyone on the platform safe.
