For no reason, Adblock doesn't block "Promoted" ads on Twitter. Is there any way to block that ads?

Twitter has a new class of ads that render with a short footer saying "Promoted (political)". It looks like this screenshot, although the ad I saw (and pasted below) only had "Promoted (political)", not "Learn more" or "Paid for by…":

Code: Select all

Here's the LI tag and entire contents. I've consistently replaced some of the HTML attribute values replaced with "12345", "45678", or "78901", for privacy. In DOM inspector, the li tag and within it, these 2 inner tags all seem to represent the entire ad area: div.promoted-tweet (the first inner div), div.content (the third inner div).

@smed79 Thanks, and will do. I'm shown so few of these ads (something like 1/week right now) that I probably can't say for sure that it's working, but if one gets through in the next few weeks, I'll reply again here. Also, I just confirmed that it doesn't block regular tweets.

@fanboy: I don't have a screenshot of the ad, but it looks very similar to the screenshot at the end of

Code: Select all

https://blog.twitter.com/official/en_us/topics/company/2018/Increasing-Transparency-for-Political-Campaigning-Ads-on-Twitter.html
On Twitter's feed page (upper left "Home" link in Twitter's logged-in site-wide navigation), it looks nearly identical or identical to any non-promoted tweet, or non-political promoted tweet, except for the small "Promoted (political)" footer.
