Politico reported Monday the three ads had been taken down, with a message saying the ad had been removed "because it goes against Facebook's advertising policies".

Facebook owns other popular tech platforms, including photo-sharing site Instagram and messaging app WhatsApp, and Warren has argued the company has become too powerful.

"We removed the ads because they violated policies against use of our corporate logo", a Facebook representative said. They've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else.

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.

According to a report in Politico Monday evening, Facebook had taken down several ads from Ms. Warren's presidential campaign that touted her vow to break up Facebook, along with Google and Amazon. It said it restored them to help "robust debate".

- Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) March 11, 2019 You shouldn't have to contact Facebook's publicists in order for them to decide to "allow robust debate" about Facebook. These were brought in to stop advertisers using them to make marketing material look like official communications from the social media platform.

Elizabeth Warren could not have asked for a better illustration for her point. Facebook declined to say how Warren's political ads had been targeted - whether it was human reviewers or the company's artificial intelligence tools. She used the flap to warn that it was unsafe for cyberspace to by "dominated by a single censor".

The affected ads, which included a video, directed users to a petition on Warren's campaign website urging them "to support our plan to break up these big tech companies".
