Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has voiced concern about Facebook after ads for Elizabeth Warren's 2020 presidential campaign were temporarily taken down by the social network.Politico first reported that Warren's ads, which called for the dismantling of big tech monopolies, such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google, had been taken down by Facebook.Advertisement
Warren responded by calling Facebook a "censor," and now it seems Ocasio-Cortez is worried about the platform's power.
"Facebook may have its own problems, but it's increasingly starting to look like our society (namely, our democracy) has a Facebook problem," she wrote.A spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez was not immediately available for further comment.Advertisement
