Warren then added that if she is elected as president, she will enforce “big, structural” modification to the current technology sector.

“That’s why my Administration will make big, structural changes to the tech sector to promote more competition—including breaking up Amazon, Facebook, and Google.”

Social Media and Political Campaigns

In this day and age, social networking platforms have changed the game in terms of political campaigns. Candidates on both sides of the aisle employ platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. to connect with and furthermore attract voters. However, not all of these candidates have called to “break up” the big tech platforms which help them politically.

At this time, Warren is third place amongst Democrat voters in the polls. Joe Biden is the frontrunner, leading by double digits, whereas Bernie Sanders is trailing behind in second place. As the Democrat primary debates approach, each of the candidates is working to improve their standing and garner more support. It’s not uncommon for candidates to run ads on Facebook, as Warren and other candidates regularly do.
