Reuters reporter criticizes Twitter for showing her a meaty-goodness targeted tweet

This is Reuters reporter Amanda Becker who’s “covering 2020 Democrats & Congress.” She’s also mad at Twitter for this targeted ad from Stouffer’s because “Americans would do themselves & the world a favor by eating less meat!”
Great. Get ready for #GreenNewDeal restrictions on advertising? Is that next?
And she’s not alone with her anger at Twitter for targeting her with the ad:
Is this a "Targeted Ad" in which case, maybe change the algorithm you are using? I have been a Vegetarian for @ least 20 years.

Trying to figure out how as a vegan I was targeted for this ad... Might want to ask the marketing team to tighten that up. 👌🏾

Or maybe the algo is too good?
Just roll with it:
This ad is spamming my Twitter feed, but I really don’t mind, and I’m hungry now.

Others have questions:
What kind of beef? The “cooked” kind, duh!
Well, the good news for the eco-warriors out there is that people eating the 2X the beef lasagna still don’t see much meat anyway:
And this:
Stouffer’s need to learn to code AND cook (but 7 million+ views seems pretty good for the ad, no?)

Stouffer's Lasagna has 2X the beef of the leading meat sauce lasagna - more savory flavors for you and your family to enjoy.
