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!”
Well that’s wonderful considering Americans would do themselves & world a favor by eating less meat! My food ads on Twitter are SO off. https://t.co/Luifq4mhfW

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:
well i don’t eat meat but thanks for 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.

@Cuddlyhugbear this is the ad I see every day, multiple times a day

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?
It freaks me out that we just ate this 30 mins ago and now this ad popped up. #bigbrotheriswatching

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???
— Bridget Kelly (@Bridget00513181) March 4, 2019
What kind of beef? The “cooked” kind, duh!
In our Lasagna with Meat and Sauce Family size, it is cooked beef.

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:
I had that tonight. However this time it was mostly sauce and noodles. (

Worse thing I've ever had… Disgrace to a delicious Italian dish!

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. pic.twitter.com/HfiIlWMJaI
