Hey Twitter, good job on finally rolling out that anti-harassment feature this week. Unfortunately, you’re not out of the mud yet. Looks like at least one questionable promoted post found its way into a Twitter user’s feed.

Another user also claimed to have seen the post in her feed.
The account that allegedly put out that sponsored content, @NEW_ORDER_1488, is now suspended. Twitter’s ad policy explicitly prohibits “hate speech or advocacy against an individual, organisation or protected group based on race, ethnicity, national origin, colour”.
A Twitter spokesperson told Gizmodo, “We do not comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons.”
