Twitter Launches Ads About Racial Inequality in Cities That Have Been Hubs of Protest

Since late May, more than 340 million tweets have been posted about Black Lives Matter

Twitter's ads are running in Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles, Oakland and Philadelphia. Twitter

While many brands have released statements in support of Black Lives Matter, few have gone out of their way to advertise directly to the communities where protesters have been rallying for the movement.
