    Poor Cathy, how is she coping with all this? Should we start an online petition for an endless supply of flat whites?

    Twitter is all nonsense. You get one ad you don’t agree with and all of a sudden its the end of the world. Delete twitter from the phone. Simple.

      You’re missing the point. They’re supposed to tell you why you’re seeing the targeted ad but that reason is “not available”

        Oh I get the point. Who says they are “supposed” to tell you? they? the law? They don’t care! I don’t care. No one cares . Twitter is for clowns! There no logical reason why anyone should use it except to promote themselves and if they are offended by ad content then its on them. The TV doesn’t have to explain why I see laundry detergent ads or faux claymation VHi commercials with that voiceover girl with the gargley voice. “Why this ad?” ” Because f you is why!” or to be more accurate: ” because you are the product”

          Oh, I thought it was part of the GDPR stuff that social media companies told you why you were targeted, apparently not. You seem very upset for someone who doesn’t care.

        I hear him in a kind of Brian Blessed voice, but Dublin and drunk. Best ranter ever. Ron is a poor cousin.

            ah but @pedyw you’d probably be too busy tapping away on the phone to notice him annoyin u

    At a guess, it is probably one of those ads sent out to people under the ‘geographic area’ rationale of the promotion policy. Cathy is in Ireland, therefore a “Catholic country” and so deserving of the word of the Lord as defined by EWTN!

    Personally, I agree that the reason should not be hidden, as this goes against your ability to stop that channel from targetting you in the future.

      She can simply click the arrow at the top and select ‘I do not want to see this ad’, in fairness
