Social Media Becomes Major Battleground For Political Parties,Twitter Starts Showing Billing Details Of Political Ads
With social media turning out to be a major battleground for political parties in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Twitter has started to show billing details of political ads as its Ads Transparency Center for the country went live on Monday.
The move follows a similar initiative by Facebook launched last month.
Political campaigning ads may only be promoted via the use of Promoted Tweets and In-Stream Video Ads; no other Twitter advertising products can be used at this time.
The Ads Transparency Center shows billing information, spend, and impression data for each promoted tweet.
“The billing information tab shows all billing addresses — city and state only — associated with the ad account,” Twitter said.
Political campaigning ads on Twitter refer to ads purchased by a political party recognised by the Election Commission of India, ads purchased by a candidate and ads that advocate for or against a clearly identified candidate or political party for Indian general elections.
Political campaigning advertisers must go through Twitter’s certification process and provide profile photo, header photo, and website must be consistent with the handle’s online presence.
The biography of advertisers should also include a website that provides valid contact information, Twitter said.
Earlier, the data from Facebook’s Ad Archive report showed that advertisers in India spent over Rs 4 crore for political ads on the platform last month and more than half of the amount came from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and its backers.
The Ad Archive report showed that Facebook has started taking down political ads that were placed without a disclaimer including government campaigns like Digital India. (IANS)

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.
Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.
Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background
The Guwahati-born author says, "With this book, I'm not trying to take away the job of parents in forming habits, I simply want to do my part as a parent. It is important that we impart the right values in our kids in a bid to build a better, more inclusive and tolerant global society that is fair to everyone." The author's first attempt at a book was an Assamese poetry 'Anubhav', published in 2010.
Set to be published under the label of Author's Channel, the book is like an adventure; a journey into uncharted territories, untouched subjects and matters long ignored. In her words. "The book takes a critical stand in defense of people in society who have had to undergo severe emotional torture for no cause of theirs. It is a terrible conception to think such people any less of a human just for being different," says publisher Aruna Naidu. By September 30, this title, priced at Rs 299, will be available online and in offline bookstores. (IANS/ MBI)
Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:
* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
