Facebook on Monday briefly removed and then restored Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s advertisements promoting hear plan to break-up big technology companies, including the social media platform.

"We removed the ads because they violated our policies against use of our corporate logo. In the interest of allowing robust debate, we are restoring the ads.” 
— Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

Details: The removal of the Democratic presidential candidate's ads was first reported by Politico. The publication also said that over a dozen of other Facebook advertisements on Warren's tech proposal were not affected.
