Twitter made the some improvements for the political or electioneering ads. Before seeing more information about improvements made by twitter on political ads  lets understand about what kind of ads are known as political or electioneering ads :-

Political or Electioneering ads are those ads that related to a clearly identified candidate or party associated with that candidate  for any elected office.

Lets now consider about improvements for electioneering ads . Twitter will creat a special section for electioneering ads. Twitter updated the appearance of political ads ,  The ads will have some sort of visual marker, likely a purple dot next to the user handle, and a purple box with the text "Promoted by" and the name of the sponsor. The changes would not affect political issue-based ads that do not name a specific candidate, although Falck said Twitter was working on this.For Electioneering ads twitter also updated electioneering advertisers policy :-


The update policy includes stricter requirements for the advertisers who can serve the electioneering ads and twitter will target a limit for the advertisers , Twitter will identify electioneering advertisers before showing ads , stronger penalties will be fix by Twitter for advertisers who creat the violation of policies . This policy will also apply to ads on our platform that run at any time and expressly advocate for a clearly identified political candidate.

With Electioneering ads twitter also working on issue based ads . Regarding issue based ads twitter announced that , " We are committed to stricter policies and transparency around issue-based ads. There is currently no clear industry definition for issue-based ads but we will work with our peer companies, other industry leaders, policy makers, and ad partners to clearly define them quickly and integrate them into the new approach. "



Twitter will develop the Transparency Center step by step , Twitter will make all of the updates discussed above firstly in the U.S., and then roll out the updates around the world. Everyone can also see informations about the progress on the official blog of twitter.
