The micro-blogging site Twitter has announced a ban on “misleading” ads related to climate change and its discussion. According to The Verge, Twitter said misleading ads that “contradict scientific consensus on climate change are prohibited, per our inappropriate content policy.”
“We believe climate denialism should not be monetized on Twitter, and this misleading publicity should not distract from important conversations about the climate crisis,” the company said in a blog post today. Twitter believes misleading information about climate change can undermine efforts to protect the planet. He also promised to share more details on how he plans to add “trustworthy and authoritative context” on climate change to the platform.
Twitter said that discussions of “sustainability” on the platform have increased by more than 150% since 2021. Discussions of “decarbonization”, i.e. eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels, also increased by 50%. Other conversations about the environment are also heating up, with discussions about reducing waste increasing by more than 100% in the same period. (ANI)
