Twitter names first international markets to get checks on political advertisers

Twitter has announced it's expanding checks on political advertisers outside the U.S. to also cover Australia, India and all the member states of the European Union. This means anyone wanting to run political ads on its platform in those regions will first need to go through its certification process to prove their identity and certify a local location via a verification letter process. Enforcement of the policies will kick in in the three regions on March 11, Twitter said today in a blog post.
