U.S. Senator Confirms She Wants to Break Up Apple in Interview

U.S. Senator Confirms She Wants to Break Up Apple in Interview

Apparently, Facebook did not require the removal of its logo from the ads in order for them to be restored.

Warren further explained, "These big companies exert enormous influence in the economy and in Washington, DC".

The Massachusetts Democrat's campaign placed the ads Friday on Facebook. They've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else.

The argument bears a striking resemblance to arguments made by Republican politicians regarding Facebook's ability to remove or censor content with which they disagree, a complaint on the right that is generally treated like a whiny conspiracy by the left.

The ads urged voters to go to her website to sign a petition urging them "to support our plan to break up these big tech companies". The ad, apparently and understandably, did not sit well with someone at Facebook, however, with Politico reporting that three such ads were unavailable as of Sunday morning.

United States 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.

A Facebook statement initially said the ads by the Warren presidential campaign violated the company's policy.

The policy in question says that Facebook ads can not use the company's corporate logo in posts.

Facebook very provocatively pulled the senator's ads calling for a big tech breakup, with a lame excuse that the social network's logo was misused in the ads; later Facebook said it would restore the ads but the act of removing them shows the social network isn't afraid of proving Warren's point about having too much power. Warren is a presidential candidate, and she said in a blog post published on Friday "My administration will make big, structural changes to the tech sector to promote more competition". Others feature images and text with the the same message.

"Curious why I think FB has too much power?" Thanks for restoring my posts.

UPDATE: 10:26 P.M.: This article was updated to show the ads were instated by Facebook. She used the flap to warn that it was unsafe for cyberspace to by "dominated by a single censor". Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). The company later called the decision "a mistake."
