U.S. Senator Confirms She Wants to Break Up Apple in Interview Sen. Warren targets App Store in bid to break up Apple

After Politico reported on the story, however, Facebook quickly worked to restore them. Elizabeth Warren touting her plan to break up the social-media giant.

The company, however, told Politico that it pulled the ads down because they violated its policies against the use of its corporate logo. Warren is a presidential candidate, and she said in a blog post published on Friday "My administration will make big, structural changes to the tech sector to promote more competition".

The three ads that were taken down had the following message posted below them: "This ad was taken down because it goes against Facebook's advertising policies".

"Curious why I think FB has too much power?" she wrote.

Stone said the ads appeared to have been removed automatically, and pointed to dozens of Warren campaign ads about her proposal that didn't use the Facebook logo and were unaffected. The spokesperson explained that the social network has now restored them "in the interest of allowing robust debate".

Today's big tech companies have too much power - too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy. "They've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else".

Unless they too are cut down to size, breaking up USA tech companies would only provide temporary breathing space before their Chinese counterparts rush in and take over. It is worth noting that Warren's policy doesn't intend to hurt small businesses performing the same stunt.

"Because it'll be a lot more fun to work there", Warren responded.

Now, speaking at SWSX, Warren has explicitly confirmed she would also lump Apple into the list of big tech she wants to break up, in an interview with The Verge's Nilay Patel. It's unclear to what extent her plans will be embraced by her Democratic rivals, some of whom have similarly voiced concern about a "major monopoly problem", as Sen.

"The whole idea behind this is for the people in this room", the MA senator said.

The email also suggested that this wasn't the only example of Facebook "pulling down an ad that could be seen as critical" and asked supporters to chip in to help the campaign spread the word about the senator's proposal to break up "Big Tech".
