X allows political ads – level 1

01-09-2023 15:00

X is a new name for Twitter. X now allows political ads in the US from leaders and political parties. These are candidates for election in 2024.

Elon Musk owns X since October. Since 2019, there are no political ads on Twitter. Things change in January. Some ads are possible in the US now. These ads are about topics like voting. X allows the ads to get more money. X will have a bigger team. More people will check that the information on X is true.

People say that X and other social media do not stop wrong information in big elections. Some people worry about X’s plans. Twitter has problems with cutting jobs and keeping information safe.

Difficult words: ad (a notice or information which helps sell a product or service), candidate (a person who applies for a job or people can vote for him for a job in politics), election (the process when people vote for a person for a job in politics).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are the potential implications of allowing political ads in X?
