  • Encourages candidates to exploit more traditional forms of media.
  • Quite clearly opposite of what Mark Zuckerberg wants.
  • Politicians still free to post thirst traps on personal accounts.

  • Lack of politics is a political statement, man.
  • Having to watch these psychopaths try to do normal-person stuff on Instagram instead.
