Snapchat will moderate and allow political ads on its platform

Snapchat’s CEO Evan Spiegel has said the company will fact-check political ads on its platform.

The announcement comes as other tech giants face criticism for their policies ahead of the 2020 US presidential elections.

Facebook has said that it will not fact-check political ads, while Twitter has banned them altogether.

Mr Spiegel said Snapchat tried to “create a place” for ads in order to engage young people in politics.

All campaign ads will be checked by a dedicated team at Snapchat, he told the news broadcaster CNBC.
