Facebook and Twitter: Donate profits from ads related to Russian meddling in 2016.

This petition had 98 supporters

Facebook and Twitter were used as tools of propaganda in our 2016 Presidential election. While they profited off of ads from fake bots posing as Americans and fake stories, US democracy was under threat. 

On Facebook and Twitter, a Hunt for Russia’s Meddling Hand

It is time for Facebook and Twitter to address their role in undermining our democracy. The only way Facebook and Twitter can show they care about this issue is if they stop profiting from efforts to hurt our democracy. Facebook and Twitter should take the profits from the Russian meddling in our election and donate it to organizations set up to protect our democracy. Ideally, these groups would be those that address voting rights of marginalized groups, civil rights, and ending gerrymandering. It is a check on two companies that carry great influence in our country and insist they can "self-regulate."
