Instead, Blackburn-who is vying to replace Sen.
Demonstrating their bias towards Planned Parenthood, the social media giant informed the Blackburn campaign that if her sentence about Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of babies is removed, the ad can be run on their platform.
Which gets to the crux of the matter: Twitter and other social media platforms have made plenty of rules about what it is and isn't acceptable on their sites.
Blackburn's says: "I'm 100 percent pro-life".
The congressional investigative panel was called for following the release of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) in summer of 2015 which appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting of unborn baby parts for profit.
Ultimately, the viral anti-abortion videos were found to be deceptively edited, and two activists behind the videos were indicted in Texas, where the charges were dismissed, and later in California.
Blackburn could argue that she worked to ensure that abortion providers are abiding by the 1993 law and pushed for even tighter restrictions.
Twitter immediately shut it down, claiming it was an "inflammatory statement" that is "likely to evoke a strong negative reaction".
Her campaign urged supporters in a tweet to join her in "standing up to Silicon Valley". It can be shared by retweet, and since Blackburn's campaign went public with its situation, the video has actually been retweeted more than 15,000 times. In the ad, Blackburn talks about her efforts to stop Planned Parenthood from selling the body parts of babies. "It's something that people wanted to see shut down".
"Most people who have been bombarded with Twitter accounts featuring swastikas and hammer-and-sickles over the past year-and-a-half are likely to find it extraordinary that an ad offering a traditional critique of the abortion industry should be especially incendiary to a sales team", Harsanyi wrote. Maybe they'll luck out like Blackburn and earn themselves some free advertising and TV coverage.
